When the Stars Begin to Fall: 
Imagination and the American South

Feb. 4 – May 10, 2015

This exhibition brings together 35 artists of different generations and working in different mediums who share an interest in the American South as both a real and fabled place. When the Stars Begin to Fall explores the relationship between contemporary art, black life, and “outsider” art, a historically fraught category typically encompassing artists who have not received formal art training and who may have been marginalized in society.
