In his artist’s lecture, Jim McDowell will discuss his face jugs. They represent, in part, the lives of enslaved people abducted from Africa, and their descendants who lived through slavery, the Civil War, Reconstruction, the Jim Crow South, the Great Migration, the Civil Rights era on into today's Black Lives Matter movement.
