The Underground Railroad: Vermont and the Fugitive Slave Jan 15 - Jun 13, 2010
In association with Martin Luther King's birthday and Black History month, the Dennos Museum Center presents an exhibition of 16 block prints by artist Samuel Kerson. The images included in this series are the original designs for the mural: The Underground Railroad Vermont and the Fugitive Slave, painted by Sam Kerson at the Vermont Law School in South Royalton, Vermont in 1995. After the mural was completed the images were published as a limited edition portfolio in book form.

Varanasi: Photographys by Larry Snider Mar 21 - Jun 13, 2010

Larry Snider has been taking photographs in locations around the world for 30 years. He documents the people and landscape of a particular region, making a personal connection with that place and its culture. In this series, Snider explores the city of Varanasi (also known as Benares), situated on the west bank of the Ganges (Ganga) River in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. Varanasi is considered to be the most sacred of India's seven holy cities and it is visited annually by more than 1,000,000 Hindu pilgrims, who believe that bathing in the Ganges remits sins and that dying and being cremated in Varanasi releases a person's soul from the cycle of its transmigrations.
