The Civil Rights Movement generated an abundance of photographs documenting the African American fight for equality and economic, political and social justice. The images captured by local and national news outlets recorded this struggle and some have become iconic images representing a collective memory of the era. Curated by Leila I. Hamdan from the UM Libraries Special Collections, these photographs illustrate a new view of the struggle in Memphis.

Follow Me by Andrew James Williams - July 12th - September 13th with opening reception from 5-7:30 Friday, July 11th

Over the last year I have been forced to review my perception of time in relation to its own space. "Follow me" is what each sculpture is asking the viewer to do as the CASEWORKS space becomes explorable to a curious group of sculptures. (Check back periodically as the sculpture grows and changes.) MORE HERE
