    The Woodlawn & Pope-Leighey House historic site presents Makers in the Mansion: A Transformed African American Community at Woodlawn through the Artisan Eye, an installation that will run in the museum from June to October. The installation features works by Nicole Crowder, Morgan Davis, Sondra Barrett Hassan, Njena Surae Jarvis, Antonio McAfee, Hadiya Williams and writer-in-residence Cherryl T. Cooley. These local makers are helping to amplify the African American voice at Woodlawn through their provocative pieces inspired by Woodlawn’s transition from a large plantation to a free work colony in 1846-1860.

    Woodlawn is open for tours Friday-Monday, 11:00-3:00. For more information on the exhibit, visit their website at www.woodlawnpopeleighey.org.
