Join Us for a Lunchtime Lecture at the Sordoni

Please join us at the Sordoni Art Gallery from noon to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 2, for a lunchtime lecture titled "Antislavery Actions in the Wyoming Valley," presented by executive director of the Luzerne County Historical Society, Aimee Newell, Ph.D. Bring your lunch and we'll provide the lecture!

More About the Current Exhibition:  A Stirring Song Sung Heroic is an exhibition of contemporary photographic works by William Earle Williams presented alongside related historic objects. Together, they depict the often invisible journey from slavery to freedom in the United States. The exhibition focuses on sites and historic events in the New World from 1619 to 1865 where Americans, black and white, determined the meeting of freedom. Williams is a 1997 Pew Fellow in the Arts, and has received individual artist fellowships from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts in 1986, 1997 and 2003. He was award a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship from 2003-2004.
