Perception Isn’t Always Reality

Perception Isn’t Always Reality is the theme of our upcoming series of events at Kranzberg Arts Center. The theme was chosen by Teen Council and grew out of discussions and reflections on bullying, bias, profiling and perception, identity and difficulties faced by contemporary urban youth. We will explore this intriguing theme more broadly with community members, including, we hope, YOU! throughout February and March.

The Community Video Sketchbook, curated by Jarmel Reece, features original work projected on the gallery wall by 27 outstanding artists. All reflect on the theme, Perception Isn’t Always Reality. Many add commentary to the discussion surrounding Ferguson.  Denise Ward Brown premieres a new interview, Little Rock 9, Buzz Spector questions the role news media played in Ferguson, KP Dennis asks us to Put the Gun Down, Mike Pagano shares Chalk Unarmed, and many more.

Join us for the opening reception, Friday, February 6th, 6:00-9:00 at the Kranzberg Arts Center. We are excited to share what we’ve been collecting and creating!
