The RedLine Gallery is at the top of Denver gallery stops. By hosting The Jonathan Green exhibit in Denver they bring a rare glimpse into an obscure southern history far removed from say, Atlanta, Chicago or New York City. The language, the traditions, the food of the Gullah culture represent an important segment of American history, not just for Southerners.
