After the Laughter When the Circus Leaves Town

An art show of the Duluth Lynchings and how they relate to the tragic incidents of today
MACON, Ga. - May 27, 2021 - PRLog -- Over a hundred years ago three young men left the south and joined the circus to work and travel America. They were 19,22,20 the age of two of my sons and they had a full life ahead of them but their lives were tragically cut short on the night of June 15, 1920 when an angry mob of residents tried them on the false accusations of rape and they were lynched in Duluth Minnesota.
National artist Charvis Harrell will make the paintings at a month long residency in New York Mills Minnesota where he will also engage the community in art projects, the journey will be documented so that people can learn from the project in social practice in hopes that people can see the common threads in each other.
Misinformation has always been at the root of most problems when it comes to race in America ,when a society that has a very small Black population, has very little interactions with different cultures ignorance can breed animosity. To bring awareness for understanding and to pay tribute to the lives of Clayton, Jackson and Mcghie. I will work an art residency in rural Minnesota where I will be the only Black resident and I will make art that pays tribute to the three young men murdered over one hundred years ago and how it relates to the tragic incidents unfolding in Minnesota today. I will document the process starting with a solo show in Atlanta Ga. for Juneteenth and a solo show at Drury Univ. I will travel the country making art ending with a month long residency in New York Mills Minnesota where I will engage the community through different art projects that ends with my art show.
