Swimming Together

Apr 19th 2022 - Aug 27th 202210 am - 4:30 pm

The museum is participating by hosting a custom exhibit titled Swimming Together and collaborating with artist Hannah Palmer of Atlanta, Georgia. Palmer works as an urban designer in Atlanta and is interested in the intersection of southern stories and urban landscapes. She is particularly interested in swimming pools and given the museum building’s original purpose and its location on the river is a perfect fit for this collaborative project.  Palmer writes about the intersection of southern stories and urban landscapes for venues like CNN, Art Papers, Atlanta Magazine, ATL Studies, and for urban design and planning projects around the world. A graduate of Agnes Scott College, she earned an MFA in creative writing from Sewanee: The University of the South.  Flight Path is her first book.

The exhibit will showcase how local history aligned with national trends, challenge myths about integration and public pools, and encourage community response about swimming with engagement boards.  Swimsuits from The University of Alabama’s The Fashion Archive will be included in a custom interactive and artifacts on loan from members of the local community will be on display. The exhibit is slated to open April 19, 2022, and run through August 27.
