Souls of Water:

Memories of the African Diaspora
Event detail
 

An exhibit of works by local artist William Rhodes featuring several pieces created using reclaimed materials, such as wood and glass, deeply informed by the theme of water and its relationship with people of the African Diaspora.

Mr. Rhodes’ artistic aesthetic has been informed by his travels to African and non-Western countries. The people, art, and cultures of these societies have inspired Mr. Rhodes to consider non-Western approaches to furniture and art, and to create utilitarian objects that are works of art.

These cultural events are free and open to the public. Check out all of our Black History Month programs and share your own thoughts on race at Race in the Public Eye.
