On view February 18 — July 30, 2017. Since 1976, Penumbra Theatre has ignited dialogue and social action in the Twin Cities and beyond by presenting original, compelling works grounded in the history of African American artistic expression and social justice. This exhibit explores the history of this storied theatre, from before there was a Penumbra, to the founding years during the Black Arts Movement, to the international recognition it has today. Told through the voices of actors, directors, playwrights, community members, audience goers and critics, this exhibit will feature artifacts, multimedia and performance, and is appropriate for all ages.
