A BLACK ARTIST RECEPTION AT 3831
December 9, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
A day celebrating Black artists and your hard work throughout the year! We’ll also be joined by artist Cory Perry for a special performance.
The South Side Community Art Center has hosted innovative, ground-breaking, and forward exhibitions and programs throughout 2023, which would not have been possible without the array of Black ingenuity and talent from the artists we’ve been incredibly grateful to work with!
Join us for our first annual Black Artist Reception, celebrating the amazing artists we’ve supported and collaborated with over the year! We’re thrilled to kick off this program with a performance by current exhibiting artist Cory Perry, an Artist Talk moderated by current exhibitions curators Gervais Marsh and Rikki Byrd, with artists Cory Perry and Nnaemeka Ekwelum, followed by a reception with light bites and bubbly! 🥂
Current exhibiting artist Cory Perry will perform: how my Mother cried when her flowers bloomed.
This performance is an ode to resilience, an embrace of memories, and a testament to the enduring spirit that emerges from the confluence of grief and celebration. Black Artist Reception attendees are invited to watch the performance, which will be screened from our Burroughs Gallery, SSCAC’s Instagram Live.
