We have been really impressed with the scope of Anne Bouie’s artwork. It is powerful work and we are excited for its installation at Clermont. Multiple mixed media works will speak to those who were enslaved at Clermont in addition to African American folklore. This upcoming exhibit, Clermont Forum II, will open to the public April 12th, will run until May 31, and will include an artist’s panel on April 26th. This exhibit is curated by the Rotating History Project in partnership with the Clermont Foundation and the Virginia Department of Historic Resources.
