Blackbird on my Shoulder featured visual artists, writers and performers who were unshakably attached to the southeastern United States and were inspired by auto(biography) and storytelling. Stories, song and poetry were installed among photographs, drawings and sculptural installation. From the marrow of the South tales grow like beanstalks, reaching towards the patient sky.

Blackbird on my Shoulder was organized with support from The Margaret Virginia Philip Art Endowment Fund.
