"Passages: An Installation in Progress by Cheryl Harper" (February 28 ? April 12, 2020) is a site-specific traveling installation intended for American colleges. The installation creates dialog about who was privileged, who was enslaved, and how to approach a better understanding of our generational histories. From a female point of view, the installation includes original family wedding dresses overlaid with other clothing and accessories owned by mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers.
Also included are hangings and floor objects related to their standard of living and aspirations. Hand-printed wallpaper brings together imagery culled from family photographs and objects that refer to immigration, plantation life, and slavery.
"Passages" at the Maier Museum of Art is generously sponsored by Maier Member, Sally Maier Rowe ?67.
