Confederate Currency and Confederate Memory in its Final Week
You only have until Sunday, July 15 to see the powerful exhibits Confederate Currency: The Color of Money presented by BB&T, and Confederate Memory: Symbolism, Controversy and Legacy.
Since April, the work of artist John W. Jones has been on display here at the museum showcasing images of slavery depicted on Confederate bank notes in Confederate Currency: The Color of Money presented by BB&T. These paintings gave the statement of how powerful the enslaved were to the economy of the South. As Jones says, “history informs art, which in turn artfully reveals more history”.
