Life Through Art Revealed In “Unmasking”
The week after Thanksgiving, Mark Making presents “Unmasking: Now We Speak” in downtown Chattanooga.
The art exhibit with performances of poetic monologues takes place at ArtsBuild on Thursday, December 1st starting at 5 PM.
I spoke with Frances McDonald, executive director of Mark Making - and Samacallihan, whose work is part of “Unmasking.”
As Frances puts it, Sammy - quote - “has a great way with words and lines. His life has been difficult, but the chronicling of it is rich with images of injustices survived by him as a very clever and gifted autistic man with a history of judicial encounters, stints in jails and mental hospitals and unrequited love. He attends Mark Making's Monday night art class, where he has been preparing for the exhibit.”
