Art Talk with Felta Virginia
September 26 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Felta Virginia’s work in our Social Commentary exhibit illustrates and satirically comments upon several issues in today’s world from wealth and poverty, to gun violence and sex trafficking.
The Disparity Series specifically is an examination of disparate relationships between poverty and wealth regarding economic, social, political, environmental and even spiritual life.
Using photographs from news magazines, news articles, and her own children’s growth charts as reference, Virginia’s work cuts deeply and is at the same time poignant and disturbingly relevant.
On Wednesday, September 26, Virginia will lead a talk and Q & A session about her work.
Free of charge; light refreshments available.
Our Social Commentary exhibit will end on October 10.
