Unshadowed Land Guided Walking Tour

May 28 | 10:00 am

Free
Soil tilled in the shape and scale of the Andrew Jackson monument

Art installation Unshadowed Land has been a year in the making. Beginning in November, Tlingit and Unangax artist Nicholas Galanin led Davidson volunteers in tilling the college campus soil in the shape and scale of the Andrew Jackson monument on Lafyette Square in Washington D.C. Then Catawba Nation members planted corn in Jackson’s shadow. The purpose of the outdoor art installation is to metaphorically “bury” the Jackson monument. The tour explores the history of the site as indigenous land, the legacy of enslavement, and the power of historic foodways and cultural memory.
