Exhibition: Past as Prologue: Portals and Doors by Julee Dickerson-Thompson

With over 44 years of experience using found objects in her artistic process, local artist Julee Dickerson-Thompson creates multi-medium works that seek to record recent histories, physically involved the audience into her artmaking, and create a bridge to access past histories. In Past as Prologue: Portals and Doors, she vibrantly composes narratives using doors and half doors to create series of colorful portals. Using Adinkra symbols, she layers the stories that have “touched her soul” and invites the viewer to navigate the realm of the stories presented.
The exhibition runs March 20 - May 30, 2017.
Free admission
