Kathleen Robbins Artist Talk

When: Fri., Aug. 22, 5:30-6:30 p.m. 2014

Kathleen Robbins is a native of Mississippi and spent much of her childhood on her family's farm, Belle Chase. Surrounded by swarming blackbirds over the canebreak, the family grew cotton on this land for more than a century. Her exhibition "Into the Flatland" on view at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art, is a series of photographs documenting the land, people, and culture of the Mississippi Delta. The artist returned to her ancestral home as an adult, and she and her brother lived on the farm for two years, breathing life back into family properties that had been long dormant.

Price: Free and open to the public
