He illustrates moments recalling his identity as an artist, an art therapist, and African American man and, in turn, lends insight into the ways he navigated the perceptions and expectations that society often placed upon him. The exhibit opens on Friday April t6hth and runs through May. Special presentation by Charles Anderson is on Saturday, May 19th, 2:00-4:00 pm.
