Derived from the Ghanian word “sankofa,” meaning “one must acknowledge the past in order to move forward,” "The Sankofa Project" is a multi-year curatorial project examining the historical events leading up to our current moment of social unrest and racial reckoning. Artwork curated by Tierney Malone is presented on Lawndale’s east-facing windows off of Main Street and accompanied by programming to inspire dialogue within our community. The fall 2022 artist is Lovie Olivia.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until December 10.
