  • About This Program

    Join us for an intimate gathering to celebrate the Harvey B. Gantt Center's new exhibition, Container / Contained: Phil Freelon - Design Strategies for Telling African American Stories. The exhibition examines Freelon's work, including museums, libraries, cultural centers, and public parks, with a focus on projects that foreground African American communities and identities. Freelon often noted that architecture should be more than a container, that it should help tell the story of, and be integral to, the content of these public institutions.

    Container / Contained was researched, curated, and designed by a team of faculty and students led by Dr. Emily G. Makaš, University of North Carolina at Charlotte School of Architecture.
