By Rochelle Valverde on September 17, 2021

Photographer Rich Frishman will host a series of art talks next week about his ongoing exhibit “Ghosts of Segregation.”

The free exhibit is currently open and will run through Dec. 12 at the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 New Hampshire St. “Ghosts of Segregation” includes 35 present-day photographs of “colored entrances,” segregation walls, locations of civil rights protests or the sites of racially motivated violence or assassinations, as the Journal-World recently reported.

The art talk will include a Q&A and will be in person, according to the event announcement. The talk will be offered in three sessions that will be limited to 25 people per session; masks will be required; and social distancing measures will be in place. The art talk will also be made available virtually starting Sept. 30.

The three sessions will take place at 7 p.m. on Sept. 21, 7 p.m. on Sept. 23 and 10 a.m. on Sept. 25. Entry is free, but registration is required and can be done on the art center’s website, lawrenceartscenter.org.
