Join the MFA for a multi-genre evening of performances honoring the legacy of Spiral, a collective of Black artists formed in the mid-1960s around the time of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Focusing their mission on balancing activism with one’s personal artistic practice, these artists sought ways to engage with the Civil Rights Movement while negotiating individual aesthetic choices.

Featured performing artists:

Tenea D. Johnson, author – speculative fiction inspired by Emma Amos

Cranstan Cumberbatch, actor – performance centered on Romare Bearden

Butch Thomas, musician – musical suite inspired by Norman Lewis

Free with museum admission.
