Due to the overwhelming response to the Migrations and Marches event, held tomorrow night at 7 p.m. at Benaroya Hall, the Seattle Art Museum will be hosting a live simulcast of the program in the museum's Plestcheeff Auditorium.

Admission to the live simulcast is free and open to the public. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

In addition, the exhibition Jacob Lawrence: The Migration Series will be free and open to the public until 9 pm. This is an incredible opportunity to hear from Congressman John Lewis, writer Andrew Aydin, and artist Nate Powell as they discuss their award-winning graphic novel trilogy, MARCH, and to experience Lawrence’s Migration Series in one evening.

Those who can’t make it to Benaroya or SAM can tune in to watch it live online. It will also be available for viewing at the SAM Blog at a later date.
