In the final “Insight Sunday” of The Church’s spring exhibition on Sunday, May 19, at 10:30 a.m., Christine Sciulli, visual artist, lightworker, mother and activist will speak about her site-specific work, “The Weight of Water,” and introduce specialists in Reparative Justice.

All are welcome to attend the session and see art, not only as a catalyst for change, but also as a platform offering a call to action. Sciulli will speak about the conception of the work and the impetus to create it, as well as the physical process of installing it, before learning about connections and history leading to New York State’s historic Reparations study committee as well as ways to participate.

Speakers at the event will include Donnamarie Barnes and David Rattray from the Plain Sight Project, Meghan McGinley, director of education at the Sag Harbor Cinema, and a representative of The New York State Community Commission on Reparations Remedies.

Named in memoriam of the estimated 1.8 million Africans resting in the Atlantic Ocean after escaping the Middle Passage from disease, murder or suicide, “The Weight of Water,” invites viewers into a safe and open space to reflect and asks the question: What can each of us offer to healing and repair for societal crimes and injustices originating by way of water?

The Plain Sight Project, which “seeks to restore the stories of the enslaved and free people of color to their essential place in American History,” joins the conversation to shed light on the work they do, the impact they are making, and the various ways people can help. This includes the “Forgetting To Remember” Project, a collaboration between Sag Harbor Cinema and Plain Sight Project. McGinley and the “Forgetting To Remember” Project team helped facilitate the creation of an inquiry-driven social studies curriculum based on Plain Sight Project research, which has been implemented in some of the East End 7th through 12th grade programs. After the presentation, there will be a brief Q&A with the speakers.

Tickets for “Insight Sunday” are $10 (members free with RSVP). Sciulli’s work is included in the exhibition “Space — Sight — Line” through May 25. Exhibition hours are Wednesday through Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. The Church is at 48 Madison Street in Sag Harbor. Visit thechurchsagharbor.org for details.
