Lincoln Perry, visiting artist in the University of Virginia’s McIntire Department of Art, will host a studio showcase of his recently completed "Lincoln Square Murals" on Wednesday, Nov. 14, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the Frank Ix Building in Charlottesville.

A closing reception for the University’s "Fringe Festival" art exhibition will follow the event from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

Perry was commissioned by a company to create the "Lincoln Square Murals" for a large office building located just around the corner from the famous Ford’s Theater where President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in Washington, D.C. The murals involve two images of Lincoln. One panel depicts a critical scene from the rehearsal of Shakespeare’s "Henry IV," which Lincoln saw performed at the Ford’s Theater in 1863. Another panel shows visitors ascending the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and includes various references to the Civil War.

Both the exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
