     In the Rotunda Gallery,  “Witness to History: Civil Rights Era Photographs by James Karales” will feature iconic images of the Civil Rights movement including photographs of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the historic 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama.

     “Both exhibitions shed insight on an incredibly significant period of American history,” says Gibbes Executive Director Angela Mack. “The photographs of James Karales offer an intimate glimpse of the Civil Rights movement in action, while Jonathan and Richard’s remarkable collection provides a broader perspective of the twentieth century and the diverse influences that have shaped American art and culture.”
