OPENING RECEPTION FOR FIFTY YEARS AFTER: GORDON PARKS, MICKALENE THOMAS AND LATOYA RUBY FRAZIER
The Gordon Parks Foundation is pleased to announce a group exhibition Fifty Years After: Gordon Parks, Mickalene Thomas and LaToya Ruby Frazier. It has been fifty years since the Civil Rights movement and since Gordon Parks’ remarkable photographs opened the door for successive generations of black photographers. This exhibition honors the achievements of these photographers. The exhibition was curated by James Barron Art in Kent, Connecticut.
At our opening reception, LaToya Ruby Frazier will be participating in a discussion about her work as well as signing her book The Notion of Family, which will also be available for sale. The reception will take place on October 28th from 6:00-8:00pm.
