Land of the Noble Free
Exhibition • Sep 6–Nov 7, 2020
103 S Main St, Lockhart TX
Curated by Mano Amiga and featuring works by:
Land of the Noble Free includes recent visual expression by artists in the region to whom Mano Amiga is threaded via shared care for greater justice, healing & liberation in our community. Day to day, the physical compilation within this windowed room –– situated directly across the street from a nasty, century-old tribute to white supremacy, planted proudly at the height of local Klan sway in 1923 –– has evolved constantly, defining movement.
Available up-close for just a fleeting two-hour opening (Sat, Nov 7: 9-11PM, for Lost River Film Fest) as society sways boozily on the precipice of a tested election –– a mortal affront to Democracy itself –– as monthslong suspended reality oozes onward, & political violence rises steeper still, we endeavor to lift our voice, muted by masks, where freedom was once rumored to ring.
