Artists Reception Friday, June 8 7-10 p.m.
The Renegades of Renaissance X is a month long visual art exhibition and performance programming that celebrates and pays homage to the Harlem Renaissance. The Harlem Renaissance was born out of many social and political changes - The Civil War, Reconstruction, The Civil Rights act of 1875, the convict labor system and The Great Migration I feel that the current changes within our government, it sheds a lot of light on the vein of hatred and ignorance that still exists within our country. In June, we wish to pay homage to this powerful art movement. Our visual and performance based artists will provide a contemporary view of this movement Artists will confront the social and political strains our country has seen in the past and present in hopes of bringing awareness and enlightenment.
