Images from “Red, Black, Green”

Thursday July 5th — More than 60 people attended the opening reception for “Red, Black, Gold,” an exhibit of contemporary local African American artists. Several of the artists attended the reception and explained the deeper layers of their pieces — Cierra Richardson, Brandon Mauro, Rachel Sims (Sun Rai), Heath Holland, Deonna Craig, and John Girton (Pastor G). Attending was a class of graduate students from IUPUI’s School for Public and Environmental Affairs. They decided the discussions were so interesting and illuminating that they want to do it again next Thursday evening. Everyone is welcome to attend. Charlie Wiles captured the feeling well: “Every time I turns around I heard another conversation I really wanted to part of.”
