Crossing The County Line: Art Reception at RMM

Fri | 4.5.19 | 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Rocky Mount Mills, 115 Falls Rd
Rocky Mount, NC United States



Artist-in-residence, Jade Wilson, will be showcasing the work they’ve created while in Rocky Mount over the past month. Jade Wilson is a visual storyteller, by way of a camera, based in Raleigh, NC. They focus on telling stories of communities similar to their upbringing and of people who generally aren’t listened to or properly cared for in a way that improves the quality of their life. Listening is the basis of this project. Please join us in the atrium at Rocky Mount Mills for an artist reception on April 5th from 6:30-9:30pm.

The Rocky Mount Mills Residency is a partnership between VAE Raleigh and Rocky Mount Mills, a live-work development in Rocky Mount, NC, centered around a recently renovated 200 year old cotton mill. The goal of the residency is to open up the Mill development to the surrounding communities by bringing in artists who will generate honest conversations with long-time residents about the history and future of their town.
