Art Together: Explore Black Art
February 20 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join us February 20 for an inspiring afternoon. All events are free, but advance registration is required for the Zoom options. Enjoy a virtual walkthrough of featured works by Black artists curated by Art That Touches the Heart. Then tune in for a live poetry reading by Rob Simon and Matthew Thompson. We are also offering free instruction for youth and adults in creating a self-portrait inspired by Kehinde Wiley, President Barack Obama’s official portrait artist. The importance of representation and self-expression in art will be discussed. Project kits (limited to 20 adults and 20 children) may be picked up at Mark Arts the week of Feb. 15.
