Envision Saint Agnes Hospital
September 27, 2017 – January 5, 2018 (Every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday)
Times: 8:30am-5:15pm
Venue: Block Gallery at Raleigh Municipal Building
Area: Downtown Raleigh
Admission: Free

Envision Saint Agnes Hospital, an art exhibition sponsored by St. Augustine University and the Office of Raleigh arts, will be on display at the Miriam Preston Block Art Gallery. The work of 31 artists is featured. The project is meant to show how art and collaboration can envision a living history and constructive future for sites that might otherwise be forgotten or, even worse, meet their demise in a city that is growing so rapidly. This exhibition brings awareness to the rich history of the site while showcasing the broad talents of community artists. Thirty percent of all exhibition sales will go toward creating a student designed public artwork that acknowledges St. Agnes Hospital. Known as "The Healing Place", Saint Agnes served the African-American community for 65 years providing both nurses training and medical care. In 1922, it was referred to as the only well-equipped hospital for Negros between Washington DC and New Orleans, serving not only North Carolina but adjacent Virginia and South Carolina. Today, the empty shell remains a beautiful edifice that reminds us of its valuable past and beckons toward a vital future.

Freeze!
September 27, 2017 – January 5, 2018
Times: 8:30am-5:15pm
Venue: Block Gallery at Raleigh Municipal Building
Area: Downtown Raleigh
Admission: Free

Often times, public space is overlooked or engaged with repetitive attention. Many are overly distracted or blind to what is happening in the physical environments they pass through in any given day. This disregard, rooted in complacency, acts as a buffer against the unpredictability of the world.
Mary Carter Taub uses colorful tape to energize public spaces and shifts the focus so the invisible becomes assessable, the overlooked becomes prominent and the ordinary becomes playful. The Block Gallery is excited to present her installation Freeze! in a space many pass through to pay water bills, buy bus passes or walk to their office each morning. Hopefully, this colorful presentation will "freeze" viewers for a moment to stop and take notice.
