February 3-5 was a big weekend for the 100 Men Hall. With the convergence of the institution’s Centennial Celebration and Black History Month, the Hall marked the occasions with their first Harlem Renaissance Festival. First, an exhibit by noted Harlem Renaissance sculptor and BSL native Richmond Barthé Opened at Studio Waveland. The exhibit also featured works by students from the University of Southern Mississippi. A new painting by artist Ayo Scott was unveiled at the 100 Men Hall on Friday, followed by a “whodunit” murder mystery dinner. Saturday featured the Hall’s Harlem Renaissance Costume Gala featuring Berkley the Artist. Finally, on Sunday, the Hall paid tribute to artist Richmond Barthé once more with a “movable mélange of artistic performance” featuring the Dance Theater Mississippi.
