The niche genre of Southern Gothic explores the complex and often macabre world of the Southeastern United States in the context of racial tensions, Reconstruction, the Great Depression, and the ghostly remains of the Antebellum era. This exhibition explores works by artists who have captured its darkness—and light. Also livestreaming on the museum's Facebook page.
