In celebration of Martin Luther King Day, Irwin House Gallery, Chene Parc, and the City of Detroit Office of Arts, Culture and Entrepreneurship presented conversation with Detroit artist, Jonathan Harris, on his artistic practice, his rapidly evolving journey in the arts and his, now famous, Critical Race Theory painting. We were joined by Detroit’s Chief Storyteller, Eric Thomas and Cornelius Godfrey – Supervisor of Educational Equity, Inclusion and Community Relationships in the Troy School District and co-founder of Affirm Celebrate Advocate, a community organization focused on meeting the needs of students and families of color. THANK YOU to the City of Detroit and to everyone who came out. We look forward to continuing the conversation….
