Sarah Lawrence Lecture about Enslaved Africans Exhibition PRINT
Thursday, March 02 2017, 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Sarah Lawrence College presents “Artists Talk,” a program in conjunction with an exhibition of artist Vinnie Bagwell’s Enslaved Africans Rain Garden project, Thursday, March 2, at 6 pm in Reisinger auditorium. Bagwell and spoken word artist Ty Gray-EL will speak about the project, which honors the enslaved Africans who resided at the historic Philipse Manor Hall in downtown Yonkers, six of whom were the first to be manumitted by law in the United States, 79 years before the Emancipation Proclamation.

On display in the college’s Esther Raushenbush Library through May are five bronze sculptures depicting a lithe woman balancing a bucket on her head and carrying fish (I’Satta), an elder woman pausing to rest on a hoe and pray (Bibi), a somber boatman (Themba), and two companion children (Sola and Olumide.) These sculptures are smaller models of the life-sized sculptures that will ultimately form a permanent installation in a rain garden setting on the banks of the Hudson River. The first of the life-sized sculptures, I’Satta, will be unveiled and displayed at Sarah Lawrence in the near future.  

Location: Sarah Lawrence College, Reisinger Auditorium
