Exhibit Opening: William Dunlap presents The Saga of Red Eye the Rooster

Painter and writer William Dunlap presents The Saga of Red Eye the Rooster, an exhibition and book featuring the work of O.W. “Pappy” Kitchens. Mississippi’s own self-taught folk artist, Kitchens began painting at age 68, inspired by the oral tradition of parable and storytelling he grew-up with. The exhibit follows Red Eye’s life from foundling to funeral as he battles lust, wrath, pride, greed, and many of the other deadly sins. Free with museum admission.
