CHRISTENBERRY: In Alabama is organized on the occasion of the Alabama Bicentennial Celebration, and honors the artist William Christenberry’s exploration of themes related to his native state. The exhibition consists of over 90 Christenberry works including paintings, drawings, sculptures and photographs, drawn from university collections at Auburn and Tuscaloosa and in Alabama’s major city museums in Birmingham, Huntsville, and Montgomery. It also includes a "prologue” installation featuring the Christenberry family’s creative lineage and legacy over four generations, and an installation of the artist’s famous studio wall of southern signs, collected during his annual journeys southward. This installation pays tribute to the artist’s ongoing “love affair” with the rural South―as the exhibition honors the state’s dedicated support of the artist and his work.
