In honor of Women’s History Month, the Gantt Center will host an evening celebrating the life and work of the legendary artist and activist, Dr. Maya Angelou.

The celebration begins with a screening of the PBS American Masters broadcast of Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise. This unprecedented film—the first feature-length documentary on Dr. Angelou—weaves her words with rare and intimate archival photographs and videos, telling hidden stories of her exuberant life during some of America’s most defining moments.

Guests will be encouraged to explore the exhibitions in each of our galleries, including a special pop-up exhibit of artwork from students of Northwest School of the Arts. The cornerstone of the partnership that exists between Northwest School of the Arts and the Gantt Center is exemplified by the number of art-making and creative engagement opportunities for all students, across disciplines. Six students from each of the departments, including Dance, Visual Arts, Theatre, Costume Design and Music will have an opportunity to showcase their unique talents, inspired by the depth and breadth of Dr. Maya Angelou’s life and work.
