Stephen Marc

Passage on the Underground Railroad


Stephen Marcís fascinating photographs and digital montages explore the history of freedom seekers on the Underground Railroad. With this body of work, Marc combines contemporary images with historic documents and artifacts to create richly-layered objects that bring the past palpably into the present.

Stephen Marc: Passage on the Underground Railroad is organized by the University at Buffalo Art Gallery. The Gibbes presentation is made possible by the genrous support of BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina and Charleston magazine.

Stephen Marc will lead a discussion and tour of his exhibition on Friday, May 27, at 11am. This event is free with museum admission.
