The rhythmic poetry of Don L. Lee (Haki Matabuti) and Bill Walker’s murals embedded across Chicago’s Southside in the 1960s greatly influenced artist Dorian Sylvain growing up. For this exhibition, she creates an 80 foot long temporary mural to reimagine how racial unity and pride appear in Black communities today.
Painter Anna Kunz takes on the physicality of color and light in a large-scale installation. Manipulating screens, transparency, free-standing board, fabric and paint, Kunz asks the viewer to experience abstract painting through their movement, sight and sound.
