Ten members of the artist collective Black Art Speaks will exhibit new artworks in Kennedy Heights Arts Center’s outdoor gallery this Summer in a show titled Undermining Silence: The Language of Change. Black Art Speaks is a collective of Black artists who elevate their voices and impact their community through artistic practices. This group emerged from the Cincinnati Black Lives Matter mural where lead artists and organizers found value in continuing their mission and combining forces. Their new original art pieces will be reproduced as large panels and installed around the KHAC grounds, which can be viewed as a drive-thru experience or guests can park and explore on foot. This exhibit includes reflective art inspired by protests against injustices which includes the purpose, process, and participation in creating a Black Lives Matter mural in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Outdoor Gallery participants include: Brent Billingsley, Michael Coppage, Cedric Cox, Latausha Cox, Kemonte Figgs, Brandon Hawkins, Lahna Lei, Adoria Maxberry, Annie Ruth, Asha White
Exhibition will be open from June 12 – August 28, 2021
