ACTIVISM & ART: THE CATONSVILLE NINE 50 YEARS LATER EXHIBITION

May 13 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Activism & Art: The Catonsville Nine, 50 Years Later

An exhibit that will examine one of the most iconic and written-about acts of political protest in 20th century American history. On May 17, 1968 nine Catholics entered the Selective Service office in Catonsville, Maryland, destroyed draft files in protest of the Vietnam War, and waited peacefully to be arrested. Utilizing the artwork of Catonsville Nine participant Tom Lewis, as well as historic photographs and materials, video from the award-winning 2013 documentary Hit & Stay, and other materials, this exhibit will explore their motivations, consider the consequences of their action, and contextualize this protest in our present turbulent political climate.

The exhibit can be viewed beginning May 12 at 10 AM, and Wednesdays through Saturdays 10 AM to 5PM and Sundays noon to 5PM.

There is a fee for admission. See http://www.mdhs.org/ for more info.
