Intersections: Dianne Smith

Exhibition Website

Aug 25 2016 - Oct 23 2016

Using the Langston Hughes poem I, Too as a point of departure, Harlem-based artist Dianne Smith showcases a series of reflections by Allentown residents on the lived experience of “I, too, sing America.” The photographic portraits and oral histories on display in Fuller Gallery were created during Dianne's spring–summer residency with a goal of fostering a deeper sense of understanding and trust between the community and the Museum. For this part of her multifaceted Intersections project, Dianne interviewed business owners and residents about their experiences moving to and living in Allentown. The resulting photos and videos comprise the part of Intersections on display in the Museum.
