Art Globally: Artists' Perspectives

Fri Feb 26 2016

What we see tells us who we are; looking is never unbiased, never neutral.

Join us in this unique chance to view a single work from multiple, nuanced perspectives by influential professionals Royal Alley-Barnes, Lisa Fitzhugh, Evan Flory Barnes, Tonya Lockyear, Charles Mudede, and Jeffry Mitchell.

Drinks and small bites included.
