Artist Talk with Curtis Woody
June 2 @ 1:00 pm-2:00 pm
Join artist Curtis Woody, for an engaging discussion of his exhibit, A Sketch of Slavery in the District of Columbia, on Saturday from 1 – 2 p.m. Maryland-based artist Woody reflects upon the experience of slavery in Washington, D.C. According to the artist, he seeks to “draw inspiration from historical connections that link individuals, families, generations, and communities.” His work seeks to breathe new life into — and enhance the unique characteristics of — a common historical heritage. He writes, “My richly layered work invites viewers to step in closer, explore details, and create or reflect on their own stories of connection. Because of the multi-layering it is my expectation that the paintings become thoughtful, spiritual, interesting and sensitive creations.” His exhibit opens in conjunction with two other exhibitions, 100 DOLLARS REWARD. and The Exchange 2018/2, that explore the history of slavery in Georgetown.
Explore his exhibit for free as part of DKMC Walk Weekend, then join the artist at 1pm in the Bellevue Room for an artist talk.
