Dream Variations part 2

Opening Reception: Friday, October 4 | 4:30 PM

Featuring Shara Mays and Christopher Williams

Inspired by the similarly named poem by Langston Hughes, Dream Variations part 2 features extraordinary works of African American artists, Shara Mays and Christopher Williams. Combining installation, video and traditional painting methods, they express perspectives on discrimination, pain and Black Joy. In doing so, these artists manage to balance not only complexity and simplicity, but also the depth and strength of their dreams.

Curated by Christopher Williams
