LAUREL, Miss. — African American women will be featured in an exhibit at the Lauren Rogers Museum in Laurel next year.
“It’s called ‘Reflections,’” explained Museum Director George Bassie. “And that is African American works from the collection of Myrna Colley-Lee. It’s a great collection. Myrna Colley-Lee is a Mississippian.”
And Bassie says the exhibit will feature about 60 pieces of artifacts. “It will start with people like Elizabeth Catlett and others, in terms of works on paper; but also into paintings and sculptures.”
The exhibit is set to run September 14-November 23. “We are really excited to have that exhibit and hopefully have her come and talk about her, kinda of who and how she collected such a terrific body of work,” said Bassie.
Museum exhibits are free and open to the public.
