Jeanine Michna-Bales

Arts & Theater

Marking the occasion of the 400th anniversary of the first slave ships in the United States, this exhibition features selections from Jeanine Michna-Bales's Through Darkness to Light: Photographs along the Underground Railroad series from the collection of Julia J. Norrell. After researching the subject for more than a decade, Michna-Bales captured various sites that freedom-seekers traveled along the Underground Railroad. Recalling the fugitives who sought refuge in the dark chambers of night, Michna-Bales conjures their frightful journeys through her mysterious, night-time landscapes. One of the few visual records on the subject, this body of work "illuminate[s] the darkened corners of our shared history," while prompting reflection about slavery's continued reverberations in our global world.
