Explore art that commemorates Jamaica’s ‘Tivoli Incursion’

It's opening day for "Bearing Witness: Four Days in West Kingston," an art exhibit explores the aftermath of the violence that rocked a community in Kingston after a May 2010 standoff between Jamaican security forces and a local gang leader wanted for extradition by the U.S. government. The affair resulted in the death of at least 75 civilians. The exhibit is art installation, part memorial and part call to action, and includes video, photos, written bios and audio accounts. It's on view through July.

Where: Penn Museum at 3260 South St. 19104

When: November 18, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

How much: $15 museum admission (kids $10)
