The Birmingham Public Library (BPL) is hosting a new art exhibit that is part of a non-partisan, nationwide campaign using art as a means to inspire civic participation by celebrating freedoms in advance of the 2018 midterm elections.

Curated by Paul Barrett, the exhibit includes paintings, photographs, prints, and mixed media works from Alabama artists: Lanette Blankenship, Becky Delgado, Carey Fountain, Frances Hackney, Ira Hill, Josh Hoggle, Angela Hollowell, Devonte Holt, Holland Hopson, illartpeace; Kiante Johnson, Tara Stallworth Lee, Leanna Leithauser-Lesley, Elizabeth Limbaugh, Erin London, Meghan Malone, Isaac Nunn, Amber Quinn, Meroe Rei, Jared Ragland, Carl Schinasi; Don Stewart, Chris Wade, and Collin Williams.

Barrett said after working with BPL on his One In Our Blood collaboration with the Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts, Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, Birmingham Museum of Art, and UAB School of Medicine last year, it was important to bring this new discussion between Alabama artists and the public to the Fourth Floor Gallery.

“Libraries are our best community resource for facts and news and continue to provide critical spaces for constructive dialogue,” Barrett said. “With local partners including Alabama Center for Architecture, Birmingham Museum of Art, Ground Floor Contemporary, UAB Institute for Human Rights, and dozens more statewide, it’s an honor to partner with For Freedoms to present this exhibition.”

Friends Gallery / Nov 2 - Nov 30, 2018
Plaza Gallery / Dec 1 – Dec 30, 2018
Born in Tampa, Florida, David Diodate lives and works in Birmingham, Alabama. He studied Art History at the University of South Florida and graduated in 1993. Prior to graduation, he studied in Paris, France. This opportunity came with the requirement, that while in Paris, he produce photographic essays. To prepare, he studied the work of early photography pioneers such as Cameron, Nadar and Stieglitz and then found himself drawn to the contemporary work of Doug and Mike Starn, Sally Mann and Richard Avedon. He has been producing camera-based work ever since this first exploration of the medium, and exhibits his work both locally and regionally.

The purpose of the contest is to recognize and give students the opportunity to reflect on the words of Dr. King while connecting his message to issues facing our nation in the 21st century. In addition, participants are provided an opportunity to display and enhance their own writing and communication skills through oration.  Drawing inspiration from his ‘Beyond Vietnam’ speech, participants are asked to answer the question “What would you say to encourage listeners to act to preserve the best in our U.S. democratic society?”

The top three written speeches from each division (high school and college) will be selected as finalists and invited to participate in the oratorical portion of the competition. Prizes will be awarded to all finalists, and a grand prize will be given to the overall winner from each division.

Click here for a link to contest rules, regulations, and more information

The deadline to submit speeches is January 4, 2019, by 5:00 p.m.

The Winter Tour is a shorter version of our full length Ghost Walks for when the weather is cold and the wind cuts you to the bone. We preview things we are working on for the upcoming year, while not avoiding the old favorites. We explore the dark history of our churches and the hidden cemeteries, the stories of our haunted hotels and theaters, and the creepiness and insanity that has inhabited this city from its very beginning. We will teach our guests the difference in ghosts and spirits, a bit of protective Latin and will conduct a bit of ghost hunting along the way.

The Birmingham Public Library (BPL) is hosting a new art exhibit that is part of a non-partisan, nationwide campaign using art as a means to inspire civic participation by celebrating freedoms in advance of the 2018 midterm elections.

Curated by Paul Barrett, the exhibit includes paintings, photographs, prints, and mixed media works from Alabama artists: Lanette Blankenship, Becky Delgado, Carey Fountain, Frances Hackney, Ira Hill, Josh Hoggle, Angela Hollowell, Devonte Holt, Holland Hopson, illartpeace; Kiante Johnson, Tara Stallworth Lee, Leanna Leithauser-Lesley, Elizabeth Limbaugh, Erin London, Meghan Malone, Isaac Nunn, Amber Quinn, Meroe Rei, Jared Ragland, Carl Schinasi; Don Stewart, Chris Wade, and Collin Williams.

Barrett said after working with BPL on his One In Our Blood collaboration with the Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts, Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, Birmingham Museum of Art, and UAB School of Medicine last year, it was important to bring this new discussion between Alabama artists and the public to the Fourth Floor Gallery.

“Libraries are our best community resource for facts and news and continue to provide critical spaces for constructive dialogue,” Barrett said. “With local partners including Alabama Center for Architecture, Birmingham Museum of Art, Ground Floor Contemporary, UAB Institute for Human Rights, and dozens more statewide, it’s an honor to partner with For Freedoms to present this exhibition.”

Born in Tampa, Florida, David Diodate lives and works in Birmingham, Alabama. He studied Art History at the University of South Florida and graduated in 1993. Prior to graduation, he studied in Paris, France. This opportunity came with the requirement, that while in Paris, he produce photographic essays. To prepare, he studied the work of early photography pioneers such as Cameron, Nadar and Stieglitz and then found himself drawn to the contemporary work of Doug and Mike Starn, Sally Mann and Richard Avedon. He has been producing camera-based work ever since this first exploration of the medium, and exhibits his work both locally and regionally.

On behalf of the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and our partners at UAB Student Diversity and Multicultural Programs, the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, Urban Impact Inc., United Way of Central Alabama, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Birmingham Southern College, Jefferson State Community College, Samford University, and the City of Birmingham, we would like to invite your students to participate in our annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “Word From the Mountain Top” oratory contest.

The purpose of the contest is to recognize and give students the opportunity to reflect on the words of Dr. King while connecting his message to issues facing our nation in the 21st century. In addition, participants are provided an opportunity to display and enhance their own writing and communication skills through oration.  Drawing inspiration from his ‘Beyond Vietnam’ speech, participants are asked to answer the question “What would you say to encourage listeners to act to preserve the best in our U.S. democratic society?”

The top three written speeches from each division (high school and college) will be selected as finalists and invited to participate in the oratorical portion of the competition. Prizes will be awarded to all finalists, and a grand prize will be given to the overall winner from each division.

Click here for a link to contest rules, regulations, and more information

The deadline to submit speeches is January 4, 2019, by 5:00 p.m.

The Winter Tour is a shorter version of our full length Ghost Walks for when the weather is cold and the wind cuts you to the bone. We preview things we are working on for the upcoming year, while not avoiding the old favorites. We explore the dark history of our churches and the hidden cemeteries, the stories of our haunted hotels and theaters, and the creepiness and insanity that has inhabited this city from its very beginning. We will teach our guests the difference in ghosts and spirits, a bit of protective Latin and will conduct a bit of ghost hunting along the way.
