About the Exhibition

Available for viewing from August 31 to December 3, 2023. Using sculpture, sound, and light, Fletcher Williams III constructs a labyrinth of personal memories, rituals, and sacred hideaways. It is both a dreamscape and a psychedelic vision of what is to be in and of the South. Both disorienting and inviting, this immersive installation offers visitors an opportunity to interact with the South in new and thought-provoking ways. “When it Rains it Shines” is made possible through the generous support of Bank of America.
