Mike McLain Artist-in-Residence
Shoebox Projects, an experimental art space with one month artist residencies. Mike McLain Artist-in-Residence, "Just as the descendants of slaves are forced to accept the history that is in their DNA, so must those of us who carry the familial legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, KKK, lynching, and segregation from the other side of the aisle. I will research my family history and build work around what I find. This work will be rooted in a desire to better understand from where I as an individual, as well as we as a nation, draw conclusions based on race and otherness."
