Renowned artist Mark Priest will be hosting an Art Exhibit Opening on March 8th, 2013 featuring works inspired by Harriet Tubman as part of the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Centennial Celebration. The exhibit continues through August 2013.
Artist Mark Priest has spent more than a decade tracing the routes of the Underground Railroad and researching the life of Harriet Tubman. As part of the Tubman Centennial in 2013, his moving series of drawings and paintings will be shown at the Museum of Rural Life in Denton, Maryland—not far from where Tubman likely passed through on her escapes to freedom.
Meet Mr. Priest at a special opening reception at 7 p.m., Friday, March 8 at the Museum of Rural Life, 16 North 2nd Street, Denton, Maryland. The reception is open to the public and includes beverages and appetizers.
