Upcoming Events

Bill Traylor: Chasing Ghosts

Thursday, October 24
7 pm

Offsite at the Capri Theatre

Join us for a screening of the groundbreaking documentary about artist Bill Traylor (1853–1949), who captured scenes of life in Alabama, from his rural roots in Dallas County to Montgomery’s Monroe Avenue (now Street), where he lived and made his extraordinary drawings. Following the film, Museum Director Angie Dodson will moderate a discussion among filmmaker Jeffrey Wolf, historian Dr. Howard Robinson, curator Margaret Lynne Ausfeld, and the audience. The Museum will have on display several of the artist’s works—nine from our rich Traylor collection are featured in the film.

Reservations are required; please contact Brandy Morrison at bmorrison@mmfa.org or 334.625.4365 by October 10. Look for further information in an upcoming e-newsletter, including plans for the dedication of a new historical marker commemorating Traylor and his work.
