Main Library - Throughout March - Jirah Perkins is a 23-year-old emerging artist in the Lowcountry. She believes that collective work and responsibility are pertinent in creating a cohesive and understanding being. Perkins experiments through different mediums and styles with a focus on empowering and uplifting women. This exhibition is inspired by the children’s singing and clapping game, “Miss Mary Mack.” In African-American communities, the many hand games played represented a communal expression of upbringing before the systematic erasure of adolescence. "Miss Mary Mack" honors the flair, togetherness and unadulterated joy of black girlhood. The First Monday Gallery Night opening reception will take place March 2 from 6-7 p.m.
