"Black Lives Matter" in Seattle: the road thus far

I'm a little in awe at the momentum of the "Black Lives Matter: Humanity Not Negotiable" exhibit. The opening reception was PACKED...

... and I'm pleased to say one of my two pieces sold that very evening.

But it didn't end there: the show has continued to receive attention from local media.  The South Seattle Emerald ran a Q&A with curator/journalist Naomi Ishisaka. Our local NBC station KING-TV interviewed artist Aramis Hamer as well.

And Real Change News contacted me for a story on the exhibit as well. It's encouraging to see how art can extend and deepen a discussion of an ongoing issue like racialized violence.
