CHARLES MCGEE RECEIVES JOYCE FOUNDATION AWARD

We are pleased to announce that Charles McGee has received a Joyce Award, with the Charles H.

The work will be officially unveiled in July of 2016 as a conclusion to the Wright Museum’s celebration of its 50th Anniversary and also will kick off a yearlong citywide commemoration of the 1967 racial unrest.
