BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) -- The Birmingham Museum of Art is opening an exhibition commemorating the civil rights movement.
The exhibition, called "Etched in Collective History", features works from artists that lived through the 1963 movement and a current generation of artists reflecting on the past, as well as looking forward to the future.
More than 60 works of art are included in the exhibit from a group of 30 artists.
Birmingham Museum of Art Director Gail Andrews says the free exhibition shows what it means to be of any race in the United States.
"There really is something for everyone, for reflection, contemplation, understanding history that maybe we haven't always understood and many different views on this period," Andrews said.
The exhibit is open to the public through November 18, 2013.
Andrews says there is also a free app available featuring reflections from artist and individuals featured in the various works of art.
