While visiting the African American Museum of History and Culture, I saw the exhibit, Guard Tower from Angola Prison. It is an extremely powerful exhibit and it doesn't one take long to be intentionally disturbed by the reality of the tower’s original purpose. The experience that I had with this exhibit made me start thinking about all the "towers" we construct to provide access to something otherwise unattainable. This series, Seven Towers, is now on display at On The Verandah, Highlands, NC.
