CULTURE SHOCK: Is this the American Dream?
September 22, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Thought provoking conversation with Mary Himes and Kimberly Camp, participating artist in this online exhibit, that demands we dig deep, beyond empty words and promises, to examine our nation’s gun culture and how it divides us.
Kimberly Camp brings a unique perspective to the making of art. She is both an artist, former CEO of the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, and former President and CEO of the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit. Her paintings and dolls, “soft sculptures”, celebrate her family and ancestors. We’ll talk to her about her 2019 painting of Stage Coach Mary(1832-1914), the country’s first African American mail carrier, and a daring, hard drinking, gun-toting pioneer.
This is a free online event in partnership with #UNLOAD and Fairfield Quickcenter for the Arts
