Birmingham native artist Mary Frances Whitfield will have her first solo exhibit in the city. The self-taught artist, whose work is currently on display at the Phyllis Stigliano Gallery in New York, will present a series of paintings called “Why?” The paintings depict the racial terror of lynchings against black people in the South. Developed as a collaboration with the Jefferson County Memorial Project, the paintings will be displayed at UAB’s Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts (AEIVA) and the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute.
