If These Walls Could Talk (January 15 - November 22, 2020) OPEN
Ginger Geyer's porcelain trompe-l'oeil sculptures of everyday objects placed throughout the Museum will set the stage for dialogues between Chlora (imaginary resident of the NCHM sometime in the past) and Ruby Virginia, her visiting friend, enacted by performance artist Jennifer Cumberbatch, dialogues between sculptor and actress, etc.
Numerous special one-time events are planned, dependent on the success of fundraising for this milestone museum project that will be followed by a reinterpretation of the Museum's "Dependency," the 9th-oldest building in Austin and the only extant habitation/workspace used by enslaved laborers (who worked on the construction of the Neill-Cochran House Museum).
Watch NCHM website for information about the closing performance, "Make America Sing Again" --
this inspiring event took place on Nov 19, the anniversary of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address.
