Alexandria Museum of Art Presents Travis Whitfield: Further On Down the Road

The Alexandria Museum of Art presents Travis Whitfield: Further On Down the Road, on view through February 26, 2011.

Artist, Travis Whitfield discovered the small town of Keachi, LA on his many trips between Shreveport and Houston in the early ‘70s. He settled there, inadvertently becoming the town’s appointed archivist, preservationist, historian, and, finally, Mayor.

Further On Down the Road includes a compilation of photographs, video, furniture and artifacts capturing the culture and life of the African-American community there. The exhibit also includes paintings and drawings by the artist.
