Just Look at Us Now

Sunday, September 26, 2021 at 3:00 PM

During the pandemic, artist and art historian Marcy B. Freedman created more than 400 digital collages.  One series within this body of work is called “Just Look at Us Now.” Thirty-one prints from this series are on view in the Hays Gallery of the Hammond Museum & Japanese Stroll Garden as part of our BROADPOWERS exhibition. These artworks focus upon the diverse accomplishments of contemporary women. The artist has made her point by juxtaposing portraits of women from the past – paintings dating from the Renaissance to the early 20th century – with altered versions of the SAME woman in a contemporary situation.

These works have inspired contemporary writers and poets, dancers, and musicians to create their own interpretations of the women depicted in Freedman’s art. On Sunday, September 26, 2021 at 3pm, members of the public are invited to experience live music, dance, and readings, accompanied by the relevant projected imagery.

The program will include:
