The Denison Museum presents “Appalachia in Focus”

Notice: this information is for a past event.
Ticket Info:
Monday - Friday: 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm Saturday - Sunday: By appointment only.

Appalachia is a mountainous area of the Eastern United States spanning 13 states from the southern edges of New York to the northernmost reaches of Georgia and Alabama. This exhibition celebrates the activists, artists, and intellectuals who enrich their region with creativity, culture, and art. Through the diverse perspectives of these artists, we hope to convey the complexity of this region, and by doing so familiarize viewers with its impact and history.

Rather than rely on tired stereotypes of this region’s struggles, this exhibit draws on the talents of artists, writers, filmmakers, and common individuals. We invite you to learn about the rich history of this area from the natives best qualified to tell it.
