Stars and Stripes: Pride and Hope Reinterpreted

• Artists Panel Discussion | Saturday | JAN 17 |1-3PM

The Price of Racial Reconciliation Book Signing and Discussion
With author Ronald Walters, Ph.D.
Saturday | JAN 24 | 1-3PM

Sixteen Americans of multi-cultural backgrounds present their interpretations on the concept of America and its icons. Viewed by the conscientious observer, the works in this exhibition reveal themes zealously debated among friends but rarely spoken among strangers: economic disparities; cultural segregation; senseless slayings; religious extremism; and civil rights abuse, are among such subjects. This exhibition and the artists open the opportunity for diplomatic dialogue.

Featured artists: Maya Freelon Asante, Christine Batipps, Susan Brandt, Wesley Clark, Calvin Coleman, Megan Hilderbrant, Cynthia Farrell Johnson, Jeffrey Kent, Ulysses Marshall, Bruce McNeil, Aïdah Aliyah Rasheed, Halide Salam, Desiree Sterbini, Rebecca Waring, Ann Marie Williams and Helen Zughaib. This exhibition was juried and curated by Myrtis Bedolla, Founding Director of Galerie Myrtis in Baltimore, MD.
