In support of her current exhibition at The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM), Monumental Cloth, The Flag We Should Know, artist and Amherst College professor Sonya Clark will join Dr. David Silkenat, Raising the White Flag author and senior lecturer at the University of Edinburgh, in a conversation about the history of truce and surrender in the American Civil War. Linking these events to a larger discussion of cultural and social history in America, connections will be drawn between themes of Clark’s exhibition and Dr. Silkenat’s new release (published by UNC Press). The discussion will be followed by a book signing with the author.
