The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) will present an exhibition of oil paintings by Charles Edward Williams. Entitled Warm Water: New Works by Charles Williams, this exhibition features a collection of re-narrated visual works based on the event that sparked the Chicago Race Riot of 1919. These works unfold the story of five Black teens, and what reportedly caused the death of Eugene Williams in Lake Michigan on the South Side of Chicago. With noted recollections and reported events, the work in Warm Water documents and sheds light on the marginalizing oppositions the teens faced during the fragile height of racial sociopolitical conditions nation-wide. The Chicago riot, which took place on July 27, 1919, was the most violent riot in a volatile summer of race riots across the United States. SECCA is free and open to the public Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.
