Join us for our annual celebration reception commemorating the date when Union soldiers led by Major General Gordon Granger rode into Galveston, Texas and proclaimed that the Civil War had ended and slavery was abolished. On January 19, 1865, the residents of Galveston were the last ones to be informed of the Emancipation Proclamation, two and a half years after it was signed on January 1, 1863.
The event is free with RSVP. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Famed street artist and graphic designer Shepard Fairey partnered with the estate of rock and roll photographer Jim Marshall to create fine art prints from Marshall’s original photographs. Each piece as crafted by Fairey is named after a civic-engagement topic and is based on an original photo taken by Marshall. The display includes five original photographs by Marshall and the five prints created by Fairey.
Location: Second Floor, Room 318 in the Stanley Mosk Library and Courts Building (914 Capitol Mall, Sacramento)
