A Preview of Things to Come

Here's a fun preview of what's to come at the Clementine Hunter African House Murals Homecoming Gala on April 9th. This is a full-sized model of Hunter's signature chicken pulling a cart. In her words, "If the chicken wasn't big, it wouldn't be able to pull it." 

This is just one of many sights to see as we welcome Hunter's African House Murals back to Melrose on April 9th. See you there!

Robert Wilson's Clementine Hunter-Inspired Exhibit

"To highlight the work of African American folk artist Clementine Hunter, participants in the Watermill Center Summer Program recreated African House, a structure on Melrose Plantation in Louisiana, where Hunter worked and painted. The center’s reimagined house, positioned at the epicenter of the event, served as a gallery for Hunter’s colorful, deeply personal canvases." - BizBash
