The Goodridge Freedom Center and Underground Railroad Museum is hosting its first Art Exhibit, “Freedom Seekers”, on Friday, April 6th at 4 pm. Although, most of us have heard about Freedom Seekers as part of the history of The Underground Railroad, many are unaware they still exist through a multitude of abuses in society, like discrimination and sexual harassment.
Several local artists created their own rendition of what the term “Freedom Seekers” means to them. This exhibit reflects their thought-provoking perception and inspiring reflection on freedom. Participant Ryan Hartley will share how his concept of freedom has inspired his photography and expanded his vision and concern for the oppressed.
2st Place – Othmar Carli, Freedom’s Here…but not Here
3rd Place – Mary Barnes, Freedom Seekers

Philadelphia Street, York. Admission is FREE. Donations are appreciated to continue hosting events and make renovations at the Museum.
