Sixty years after the release of the film adaptation of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” a new exhibit at the Gadsden Museum of Art examines the character of Atticus Finch in an exploration of the complexities of hero worship and human relations.
The exhibit, running through Aug. 26, was developed by Tyler Jones, Fen Kennedy, Todd Slaughter and Melissa Yes. Titled “Finches,” the interactive exhibit combines film with objects and artifacts from the Monroe County Heritage Museum. It also showcases quotes from Alabama native Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel from 1960 and her book “Go Set a Watchman,” discovered and released in 2015. Considered an early draft of Lee’s most famous work, “Go Set a Watchman” portrays a more complicated Atticus Finch than the endearing character crafted in “To Kill a Mockingbird.”
