[exhibit] The light that shines through the cracks @ La Pena // Berkeley
January 7 @ 12:00 pm - January 28 @ 5:00 pmfree
La Peña Cultural Center – 3105 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley, CA 94705.
This art exhibition reflects on the act of collective care within nearly two years of unprecedented challenges both locally and globally.
Curated by the wonderful Cece Carpio and featuring BIPOC artists and activists from various backgrounds and mediums, the exhibition will explore visual displays of mutual aid that artists have enacted and created throughout the Bay Area. Artworks will range from traditional abstraction and figuration, to spiritual expressionism, muralism, sacred practices, and grassroots activism!
We are responding to the weight of these times of crisis with a celebratory lens, putting the magic of togetherness in the spotlight and offering inspiring representations of solidarity, care, and support that our communities have carried out as a path towards social transformation.
Come join us in celebrating the power of community!
