#UNLOAD FOUNDATION - Culture Shock: Is this the American Dream?
Time: 01:00 PM
Free virtual event; Tune in by visiting www.thequicklive.com.
#UNLOAD’s Mary Himes and Miggs Burroughs will host a series of online conversations with Christy O’Connor, the curator of the New Jersey exhibition, Thoughts and Prayers, Another Round of Vacant Stares, and several of its participating artists. We’ll explore their varied responses to the crises of our time–an out-of-control pandemic, public acknowledgement of police brutality, a gun culture that permits mass shootings and high rates of accidental deaths and injuries– and question some basic tenets of the American Dream.
Kimberly Camp brings a unique perspective to the making of art. She is an artist, former CEO of the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, and former President and CEO of the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit. Her paintings and dolls, “soft sculptures”, celebrate her family and ancestors. We'll discuss her 2019 painting of Stage Coach Mary (1832-1914), the country’s first African American mail carrier, and a daring, hard drinking, gun-toting pioneer.
