This My Life. This My Art

This My Life. This My Art.teen art exhibition

"This My Life. This My Art" teen art exhibition with Madison Public Library Bubbler

This My Life. This My Art is a celebration of identity through the lens of AFROFUTURISM.  Produced over 15 weeks of workshops, and launching with identifying idols and capturing similarities to one another, the group used material from photography sessions to then work through a progression of visual disciplines in search of expressing their optimal future self. The art and the conversations reflect individuality, societal perceptions, and the future outlook of each self and of each other.
