Stolen Identities: River Routes to Freedom Collection
May 4 - August 4, 2023
Deborah McDuff Williams is a multi-talented artist whose training, extensive travel, and lived experience have provided her with the tools to reflect on life and society from a unique and highly textured perspective. Sensitive to waste, she frequently employs used, natural, or found objects and materials to visually communicate researched stories about the plight or achievements of the human experience. Influenced by African cosmology, history and Deborah McDuff Williams' love for wood and water, Stolen Identities amplifies enslaved Africans' plans and routes for escape and freedom.
