Current Exhibit

“Birthing Next Generation II: Many Colors of Motherhood"
- Jenita Landrum
 November 7, 2014 - January 9, 2015

Landrum’s art is influenced by issues that affect gender, race, class and self-identity. Her work challenges the viewer through images that reflect the realities of invisibleness, beauty, racism and cultural norms. In this exhibit, she focuses on the voice of women who have birthed/hatched the next generation. View images from the exhibit.
