Lest We Forget: Images of the Civil Rights Movement

Martin Luther King Portrait in Gallery
See the work of Woodbury artist Robert Templeton (1929-1991) in a compelling chronicle of the struggle for equal rights, which took him over two decades to complete. Templeton's commitment to this project stemmed from his experiences in Detroit during the 1967 riots where he was so moved by what he witnessed that he devoted a large portion of his career to portraits of the people who personified the struggle. You won't want to miss this gripping exhibition that tells the tale of commitment and self-sacrifice.
