Drawings of Underground Railroad Journey, Maps, at Currier
A suite of large-scale map drawings and a series of drawings that tell the story of an enslaved family's journey along the Underground Railroad are new additions to the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester.
With "Critical Cartography: Larissa Fassler in Manchester," the artist creates drawings, paintings and sculptures based on research and observation of cities.
Her drawings reflect her impressions of Manchester's downtown over several weeks in the summer of 2019. The museum also acquired "Whispering Quilts" By Richard Haynes, who used traditional quilting patterns to evoke the narrative in his compositions.
