Two Nights Only! Do not miss the limited run of Certain Party or Parties Unknowna multi-media public art exhibition furthering community dialogue about racial justice and increasing awareness of local history.

Certain Party or Parties Unknown is a social justice projection art exhibition focusing on three African American men who fell victim to racial terror lynchings in Montgomery County in the 1880s: Mr. John Diggs-Dorsey, Mr. George Peck, and Mr. Sidney Randolph. Six regional artists – Curtis Woody, Nikki Brooks, Tim Davis, Alix Lambert, Liz Miller, and LaShell Rivers – will project artwork onto Downtown Rockville across two city blocks in remembrance of this historic injustice. Beginning at the Historic Red Brick Courthouse, visitors will take a short walking tour to view all nine installations.

Commissioned by the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County (AHCMC) as a member of Montgomery County’s Remembrance and Reconciliation Commission, AHCMC launched this project in support of Remembrance and Reconciliation Month and this time of reflection to better understand our full history.

This exhibition is free and open to the public. Certain Party or Parties Unknown will be on view in Downtown Rockville from November 5-6, 2021.

The exhibition will be on view at the Historic Red Brick Courthouse at 29 Courthouse Square, Rockville, MD.
