ARTIST DEMARCUS MCGAUGHEY: “KINDRED”
MAY 27, 2023
SAAM OPENING SEASON ART EXHIBITION
Demarcus McGaughey was doing a residency in Southampton and was encouraged to visit the Southampton African American Museum (SAAM) last summer.
He was eager to learn about the BIPOC community and especially the Black community that he did not know or think existed in Southampton (aka The Hamptons). After spending a few hours with Demarcus we felt a connection with the importance of preserving family history.
So Demarcus will be our 2023 Opening Art Exhibition entitled “ Kindred”. This exhibition will featured portraits of his family legacy which captured and align with our mission:
To promote an understanding and appreciation of African American culture by creating programs that will preserve the past, encourage learning and enhance the life of the community. SAAM will research and collect local history, produce media events, create exhibitions and community celebrations.
