Activism & Art: the Catonsville Nine, 50 Year Later is an exhibit that will examine one of the most iconic and written-about acts of political protest in 20th century American history. On May 17, 1968 nine Catholics entered the Selective Service office in Catonsville, Maryland, destroyed draft files in protest of the Vietnam War, and waited peacefully to be arrested. Utilizing the artwork of Catonsville Nine participant Tom Lewis, as well as historic photographs and materials, video from the award-winning 2013 documentary Hit & Stay, and other materials, this exhibit will explore their motivations, consider the consequences of their action, and contextualize this protest in our present turbulent political climate.

 

Free! Light Reception to follow.
