Protest Portraits, a large-scale art installation, will be on exhibit on the Plymouth, New Hampshire town common from August 1-9, 2020.
The public is cordially invited to an opening reception on Sunday, August 2, from 4:00 – 6:00 pm. We respectfully ask that people wear masks and maintain social distancing. There will be live jazz music by Mark Flynn on the bandstand and free ice cream.
Protest Portraits is an installation of life-sized black and white photographs from a series. The exhibit provides an ongoing presence of peaceful demonstration and protest.
Shortly after the murder of George Floyd, I decided I wanted to help support the Black Lives Matter movement in some way. I began welcoming protesters into my studio during protests on the common in Plymouth, NH. I listened to peoples’ stories and made their portraits. I shared the portraits on my blog and social media, and now I hope these portraits continue to invite conversation and inspire change.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information, please visit https://maundymitchell.com/protest/
