If These Walls Could Talk & Conversations Over Pie Opening
January 15, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
The Neill-Cochran House Museum is proud to host the major history and artistic collaboration If These Walls Could Talk. The show will place ceramicist Ginger Geyer’s modern porcelain sculpture into the historic spaces of the museum.
Geyer, in collaboration with actor Jennifer Rousseau Cumberbatch, will use the artwork as a launch pad for a series of conversations between two adolescent girls, Chlora and Ruby Virginia. The two girls, one white and one black, will highlight similarities and dissonances between past and present, high art and material culture, and experiences and treatment one would have received in a home like the NCHM Greek Revival-style mansion depending on race, class, gender, and socio-economic status through time.
