OF MEN & MYTHS: JOE CAIN, JULIAN LEE RAYFORD, AND THE MAKING OF CHIEF SLAC

Aug 29th, 2022 - Mar 27th, 2023 ·

"Of Men and of Myths" examines the facts and fictions of Joe Cain's contributions to Mobile's greatest living tradition of Carnival. Cain was one among many who revitalized Carnival in the 1860s. No celebration of Joe Cain is complete without mention of Julian Lee Rayford. "Of Men and Myths" is the first exhibit to dive into the life and art of this influential Mobile Renaissance man. Rare, and previously unexhibited, drawings, sculptures, and documents shed light on the man behind a Carnival icon. "Of Men and of Myths" is a once in a lifetime show that peels back the mask of Carnival mysticism yet celebrates the culture behind its enduring magic. The exhibit will be on display through March 31, 2023. For more information on Museum hours and tours visit https://www.mobilecarnivalmuseum.com/
