February 13th from 6-8pm at Hennepin Theater Trust
Over the past 9 months, 6 local, Black, Queer and Trans, artists explored multiple artistic mediums that have been used to shape social movements through artistic workshops and community organizing political education as part of the “Black Visions Cohort”. On “Black Love Day” and in celebration of our ancestors and Black people across Minnesota, we invite you to witness the culmination of their process exploring:
“What does the future of Black Minnesota look like?”
The exhibit will feature original artworks by all 6 cohort members, as well as food, drinks and entertainment! Check out the event on Facebook and share with your community.
