The Underground Railroad Mural

by Sam KERSON and KATAH

New contemporary version of the mural censored in the United States

Digital reproductions + Linocuts

The illustrations of the revisited version of the fresco will be presented in the form of large digital reproductions as well as 16 linocuts that served as motifs for the mural of the time.

From enforced silence to freedom! This exhibition offers a new version of the mural “The Underground Railroad: Vermont and the Fugitive Slave”, produced in 1993 by Sam Kerson in Vermont (USA) , a major artistic creation now censored and walled up by the deans of a law school.

It consisted of two panels that depict the inhuman enslavement of men and women and chronicle the actions of American abolitionists and their success in ending institutional slavery in the United States.

The artists Sam Kerson and Katah, residing in Canada, do us the honor of being present at Launaguet the weekend of September 11 for the opening as well as the weekend of September 24 and 25 during the opening of the Muse en Goguette for Les Arts en Balades de Toulouse (Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.), do not hesitate to come and discuss this exhibition with them.
