For this installment of our Lunch & Learn series, we are joined by UNCC Department of Dance Professor Tamara Williams and Filmmaker Marlon Morrison to learn more about the history of Ring Shout dances and the creation of the piece “Remembrance” for the UNCC Fall Dance Concert. Portions of the piece were filmed outside Siloam School as Williams and Morrison looked to capture the history of this dance style in the shadow of Charlotte’s historic spaces.
An Afternoon on the Grounds
Saturday, February 13th, 2021
12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
UPDATE: This has been canceled because of the inclement weather.
The Museum is open to the public one Saturday a month for socially distanced Afternoon on the Grounds experiences (except in January because of unpredictable weather).
On February 13th, the Museum will open its 8-acre site for a self-guided, outdoor experience of Charlotte’s oldest home site. Guests can explore the Museum’s park-like setting, walk through the garden, and view the historic buildings. Tickets are discounted to just $10 per vehicle and include a digital guidebook that tells the story of the people who lived and worked at the Rock House and includes videos and resources to dig deeper into Charlotte’s past. To support social distancing, tickets are limited.
Visitors over the age of 5 are required to wear a face covering when they may be within six feet of any person not in their group, including Museum staff. Visitors ages 2-5 are highly encouraged to wear a face covering.
The main Museum building will not be open. No restrooms are available for visitors, so please plan accordingly.
