4th Annual Art of Transformation Exhibit “Through the Eyes of Others”

4th Annual Art of Transformation Exhibit "Through the Eyes of Others"November 6 & 7, The ARC, 675 Ali Baba Avenue, Opa-locka

The exhibition, Through the Eyes of Others, aims to provide a critical platform for re-imaging the past, present and future possibilities of blackness as something more complex than race. While label images of black people continue to reinforce negative attitudes, the exhibition showcases the strength and resilience of a community that is finding unity through art. With events such as Art of Transformation, OLCDC hopes to achieve its goal of transforming Opa-locka into one of the region’s better known centers of the arts, culture and living. This exhibition is a vital part of gaining awareness for a community of choice where people want to live, work, play and create, which is made possible through OLCDC’s investment in the community. Presented by the Opa-locka Community Development Corporation along with featured artists Dread Scott, Bernard Williams, Hank Willis Thomas and Andre Leon Gray and will be curated by Tumelo Mosaka. The exhibition runs from November 6 – December 11, 2015. @OLCDC
