Protest Portraits – October Updates

It has been a busy month for the Protest Portraits. We moved the large-scale outdoor art exhibit from Holderness School to Plymouth State University, where it was installed for ten days. Next, we installed it at New Hampton School for two weeks. Teachers and professors at each school incorporated the exhibit into their curriculum.

At PSU, the exhibit was installed in front of the Hartman Union Building.

Amy Wilson, Chair of the Visual and Performing Arts Department at New Hampton School designed lessons around the exhibit. The School’s Diversity Club coordinated an opening reception, and there was much discussion.

Then we moved the exhibit to storage for the winter. Special thanks to the NH Master Chorale for sponsoring the storage unit until spring. Several institutions are interested in displaying Protest Portraits in the spring. Please email maundy@maundymitchell.com if you’re interested in having this exhibit at your institution.

Thank you again to the many volunteers, donors, participants, and community for supporting this movement and this exhibit.
