In 1994, brothers Tom and William Kelly and their friend Kevin Hasson joined together as The Bogside Artists. Having personally experienced the unfolding of the Northern Irish 'Troubles,' they united to express the struggle for civil rights in their community through the Ulster tradition of using murals for social commentary. This exhibit features murals and text that provide a balanced commentary on the history of Northern Ireland. From Protest to Peace is on loan from the Georgia Southern University Museum. Open during Museum hours: Tuesday 12-5; Wednesday, Thursday, Friday 9-5; Saturday 10-4; Sunday 12-4.
