This exhibition, encompassing the entire Museum, tells an updated story of the South through the permanent collection and recent major acquisitions. Drawing inspiration from Ralph Ellison who said, “knowing where we are has a lot to do with our knowing who we are,” this exhibition provides a portrait of place that challenges conventional notions of Southern identity. With a geographic region spanning from Baltimore to Miami to El Paso, Knowing Who We Are celebrates the diversity of the region – its histories, cultures and proximate traditions – offering a view of Southern identity that is more fully representative of its people.
