What: About Face Exhibition Opening
Where: Creative Alliance, 3134 Eastern Ave
When: Saturday, December 10th, 6pm-8pm
Featuring artwork by Amy Sherald, Rozeal, Tim Okamura, and Ebony Patterson, the Creative Alliance is welcoming its new About Face Exhibition. All of these talented contemporary artists have come together to create art that gives attention to underrepresented communities and historically marginalized groups through the art of portrait. Each piece of art attempts to denote stereotypes about race within each artist’s specific style. The opening is a free event open to the public, and the About Face Exhibition will be open until January 28th, so there is plenty of time to stop by. Whether it’s Amy Sherald’s black and white depiction of someone dressed in a way to contradict stereotypes or Ebony G. Patterson’s photo prints of different human forms, these pieces will grab your attention.
