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.
