Break Down Barriers with This Thought-Provoking Exhibit
How anyone views himself is filtered through a series of frames and issues, or even barriers, perhaps. Identity is a loaded term, and that’s a good thing. Discussing identity means discussing gender, politics, culture, and various other defining issues.
That discussion is just the aim of Identity: I Am One, I Am Many, presented by Sunset Art Studios and the Oak Cliff Cultural Center at the OCCC, 223 W. Jefferson Blvd., opening 5:30-8 p.m. Saturday and running through June 9.
It’s inspired by a quote attributed to activist and co-founder of the National Farm Workers Association, Cesar Chavez – “Preservation of one’s culture does not require contempt or disrespect for other cultures.” Identity features Sunset Art Studio’s artist residents, Tina Medina, Johnathan Foster, Iris Bechtol and artist coordinators, Emily Riggert and Rachel Rushing, and their works that spotlight defining the self and the world surrounding the self.
Admission is free to the opening as well as the long-term exhibition.
Even though McCallum Communities, the premier apartments in Dallas, Texas provides you with all of the comfort, convenience, and entertainment you could possibly desire, we encourage our residents to venture outside of our apartment community and explore all that the city has to offer!
