Reception and Special Program – All Me: The Life and Times of Winfred Rembert
February 8 @ 5:30 pm
Thursday, February 8, come to the Muskegon Museum of Art for a reception and a special program, “All Me: The Life and Times of Winfred Rembert!”
Winfred Rembert has a lot of stories to tell, from his childhood on a cotton farm to his near lynching during the Civil Rights movement; his life experiences are the bed of work that inspires his artwork. This film documents Rembert’s life and how his tooled leather artwork has become his biography and therapy. This film was directed by Vivian Ducat of Ducat Media. Ducat is a native New Yorker and strong advocate for the arts. She will join you for the screening and in a Q & A with artist Winfred Rembert following the film. The reception begins at 5:30pm and the film (60 mins.) is at 7:00pm.
Southern Roots: The Paintings of Winfred Rembert will be on display at the museum December 14, 2017 through March 18, 2018. For more information, call 231-720-2570.
