POOL: A Social History of Segregation

POOL weaves together history, site-specific artwork, storytelling, scholarship and place-based learning.

The exhibit installations build on one another to illuminate a history of segregated swimming in America, and its connection to present-day drowning issues affecting Black communities.

Open Wednesdays – Fridays, 12pm – 5pm and Saturdays, 10am – 5pm.
