Clarksville Walking Tour
Free with RSVP. Space is limited! RSVPs will open online beginning on Monday, April 2.
Artist Rodney McMillian’s exhibition Against a Civic Death continues the artist’s formal inquiry into painting, abstraction, and performance with a discomforting social critique of American histories, injustices, and structures of power. Explore Austin on a walking tour that considers the relationship between architecture, politics, and place and how they have changed over time.
In connection with the photography exhibition Seen & Unseen: A Sunday Afternoon in Clarksville, at UT-Austin’s Art Galleries in Black Studies, this tour will explore Clarksville, a westside community founded in 1871 as a freedom settlement.
Visit landmarks such as Sweet Home Missionary Baptist Church and The Haskell House and learn about the impact these historic sites have had on the larger narrative of the community.
