In celebration of the life of legendary Melvin Van Peebles, Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Art & Storytelling presents a selection of art objects, artifacts, and ephemeral materials, contextualizing his legacy as a filmmaker, activist, and visual artist. As an extraordinary individual who kept a child-like sense of openness and curiosity about the world around him, the exhibition features a recreation of Melvin’s living room (The Blue Room) with original objects from his home.
