Description

Join us for a screening of the groundbreaking documentary about the artist Bill Traylor, who captured scenes of life in Alabama—from his rural roots in Dallas County to Montgomery's Monroe Street (then Avenue), where he lived and made his extraordinary drawings. Following the film, Museum Director Angie Dodson will moderate a discussion among the audience and filmmaker Jeffrey Wolf, historian Dr. Howard Robinson, and Curator of Art Margaret Lynne Ausfeld. At the same time, MMFA will display a sampling of the artist's drawings - 8 from our rich Traylor collection are featured in the film.

Look for further information in an upcoming Enewsletter, including plans for the dedication of a new historical marker commemorating Traylor and his work.

With Alabama State University, Breakaway Films, the Capri Theatre, The Montgomery Film Festival, Kress on Dexter, and Landmarks Foundation

Supported by the Alabama Humanities Foundation

Following the film, Museum Director Angie Dodson will moderate a discussion among filmmaker Jeffrey Wolf, historian Dr. Howard Robinson, Curator of Art Margaret Lynne Ausfeld and the audience.
