Henry "Box" Brown: FOREVER 
by Wilmer Wilson IV
Monday, April 9th 
9:00am - Early Afternoon 

Though still a student at Howard University, Wilmer Wilson IV (pictured) has already staged successful performances at Hillyer Art Space and the (e) merge art fair in the district. Wilson will create a suite of performances based on the historic 19th century figure Henry "Box" Brown, a slave from Richmond, Virginia (the artist's hometown), who mailed himself to freedom in the North by paying to be shipped in a crate. 

For Henry "Box" Brown: FOREVER, Wilson will cover himself with three grades of postage stamps and walk into post offices, asking to be mailed.

Curator Spotlight with Laura Roulet. Live music by: Kris Funn & Corner Store. Live food & drinks will be served.

Both events will take place at the 
Lincoln Theatre
1215 U St, NW
Metro: U St
