Through the Eyes of Art
February 1 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm$8 – $15
Produced by The BrandKings in collaboration with MoPOP, Through the Eyes of Art is an annual program designed to use art as a language for conversation on issues impacting the Black community.
Through music, dance, spoken word and visual art, this annual program frames these discussions around a new theme each year. The 2019 theme is Simunye, a Zulu word meaning “we are one.” By presenting the stories of differing journeys throughout the African diaspora the evening will look at the relationship between the African and African American experience.
