Next Exhibit: “Black Culture” – A Photography Exhibit

On April 19th, UrbArts will open its next art exhibition focusing on the works of black photographers. Though it will be on view for a limited time, visitors will be able to experience the works on opening night and during gallery hours, Tuesday through Thursday, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm.

Alezy Irving, one of the exhibit curators, describes this way:

In a society where our culture is constantly pulled and reproduced, its important for African Americans to define their culture for themselves. This exhibit will be a personal lens through which photographers of color raised in the St. Louis area will define what ‘Black Culture’ means to them.

This exhibit will install a sense of pride and self-awareness to creatives and allies alike. The exhibit will be up from 4/19 through 4/30 and the opening event will feature the musician Tonina, the poet Victoria and will collect funds, clothes and book donations for a school library in Ghana.

This exhibit is curated by Alexy Irving, a photographer from St. Louis.
