Exhibit Opening: William Dunlap presents Pappy Kitchens

September 29, 2020, 9:00 amMarch 7, 2021, 5:00 pm CDT

Painter and writer William Dunlap presents The Saga of the Red Eye 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 67 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. Heroically defeating them all, he succumbs to his own fatal flaw. Free with museum admission.
