New Art Installation Opens in Alexandria’s Waterfront Park on March 25
A new art installation will soon open in Old Town Alexandria. The Zebra first reported on the installation last November. Created by New York-based artist Nina Cooke John, the piece, titled “Two Boxes of Oranges and Admonia Jackson,” depicts the hull of an 18th-century wooden ship. The name is derived from the cargo these ships carried from food to enslaved people who were part of the domestic and transatlantic slave trade.
