Seeking Shelter

Date: 
Friday, May 6, 2016 (All day) to Thursday, May 26, 2016 (All day)

OPENING FIRST FRIDAY, MAY 6, 2016, 6-9PM

Seeking Shelter examines the state of homelessness in Tulsa and is made up of work by artists who are either presently or formally without a home or by artists who are interested in giving voice to those individuals.  It explores the various aspects of homelessness, not simply one view, in the hopes of changing stereotypes.  Living Arts Artistic Director, Steve Liggett curated this exhibit with much help from Emerging Curator, Jeana Acosta.

Also opening (in the West End Gallery) will be UnHomed, an exhibit curated by Marianna Pegno, which features artworks by Rogers State University students from their Art for Social Change curriculum taught by Anh-Thuy Nguyen and David Blakely.  Also in the West End Gallery is Anh-Thuy Nguyen's installation Food of MEMORY. Imbedded performances of homeless stories entitled For Your Examination by David Blakely and Anna Hudson will also be taking place during the opening.

Tulsa Public Schools Exhibit What is Home? curated by Julianne Clark will be on display at the  Zarrow Center (124 E Mathew B. Brady St) on First Friday in May.
