“Love Daddy: Letters from My Father” Exhibit
September 15, 9:00 am – December 15, 5:00 pm
“Love Daddy: Letters from my Father” reveals the complicated relationship between a father and son, separated by distance and time while bound by love and admiration. David Rae Morris, son of the late Willie Morris, uses photographs as snapshots into who his father was as a man, father, and author. Willie Morris’ letters reveal an everlasting love and affection that he was unable to express through dialogue but could through written word. The letters and photographs intertwined helped both men cross the generational divide to understand each other, but to also love—daddy and son.
