ANDY WARHOL MUSEUM
Without Sanctuary: Lynching Photography in America From: Now through December 31, 2001
On display on the Museum's sixth floor, the exhibition is drawn from the rare photographic collection of James Allen, an antiques dealer from Atlanta, Georgia. Without Sanctuary documents violent public lynching in the American South from the 1890s to the 1930s and includes approximately 100 photographs. In adjacent galleries is space devoted to the exhibition's historical and contemporary context, including a perspective on Pittsburgh's link to the anti-lynching movement via the Pittsburgh Courier newspaper. The sixth floor also includes space for the public to reflect on the images in the exhibition and comment about their own thoughts and perceptions.
