The Evelyn Burrow Museum offers two unique exhibitions
The Evelyn Burrow Museum, located in the Burrow Center for the Fine and Performing Arts at Wallace State Community College, invites you to see Darkness into Life, an exhibition of Alabama Holocaust Survivors, and Family Matters: LGBTQ Youth Perspectives featuring photographs by Carolyn Sherer. Both exhibions premiered during the college's PULSE event, which offers students two days of workshops, speakers and activities. These exhibitions were presented by the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging Committee.
Family Matters highlights LGBTQ youth in the Deep South and the challenges and triumphs they face in society with and without the support of their families. The exhibition premiered at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute in the spring of 2014, and has been shown at Art Basel in Miami and the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, as well as many other institutions. It is part of the Magic City Acceptance Center’s permanent collection. The project was made possible in part by a grant from the Alabama Humanities Foundation, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. (On view in the Burrow Museum through Dec. 2.)
