BOBV3 Closing Reception

Join us for one final celebration of Black on Black V3! This exhibition has been a whirlwind - opening in a former Kmart, being featured in VAE 35th Annual Gala, hosting over 800 people in the first two weeks, and then moving to the former Amtrak offices to have a second life closer to downtown Raleigh.

Now the time has come and we will close the BOBV3 exhibition on Sunday, April 28 from 3 to 5 PM. Join us as we celebrate the works and the messages they represent. We'll have mimosas and other goodies as you mingle and take part in the show. 

The artwork in the show looks at solutions to some of the issues the community faces through installations, video and mixed media. Here’s the statement by guest curator Mike Williams: 

"People of color in the United States have been systematically marginalized by both those in power and the institutions they represent. Media has portrayed us as violent and uneducated, while history books describe us as savages with no moral standing. Since people of color don't control media or write history books, the problem of inaccurate depictions persists."
