Underground Railroad Exhibit: A Journey to Freedom

Commemorating a painful time with art and words

The Bellefonte Art Museum for Centre County announces the opening of a permanent exhibit to commemorate the role of our region in the operations of the Underground Railroad. Although several area locations were used by enslaved people seeking freedom, there is no place in the Bellefonte Borough where a visitor might learn about that tragic time in our history. The exhibit contains information about the operations of the Underground Railroad, art work depicting the courage and suffering of the enslaved African Americans and stories about the local citizens who helped and supported them. The exhibition will open on Sunday, April 3rd from 1 - 4:30 with a reception and a program of poetry, music and a talk by local historian, Constance Cole.
