Housatonic Museum of Art will host a project launch and brainstorming session for sculptor Rachel Owens project, Life on the Other Side of the Cracked Glass Ceiling-Bridgeport

Tuesday, October 16, 2018 from 11am to 1pm
Beacon Hall Events Center

Students and the Community will gather to brainstorm the ways in which this project can work to engage Bridgeport in meaningful conversation in order to create a public program together. Centering on the Mary and Eliza Freeman Houses, a series of sculptures incorporating glass casts of the front porch of Mary's house will be activated through public discussions and performances developed by, and pertinent to, Bridgeport's diverse neighborhoods.

The Freeman Houses are the oldest standing structures owned and built by people of color in Connecticut, and even more importantly, by unmarried women at a time when women were not allowed to own property. These buildings are all that remain of the radical, multi-ethnic community, Little Liberia, a place that was founded as a model of equity. This project seeks to revive that model.
