The exhibition launches with an open house reception on Friday, February 10, 2023 from 5:00 – 10:00 pm and showcases a new body of work inspired by an intense conversation-piece he created at the end of the year entitled Not Your Negro.

A John Sims tribute mural, created by Quadre Curry, is also installed through the end of the month, and revolutionary works by Sims will be displayed and screened on the 2nd floor throughout.
