“Sacred Reflections” Exhibition by PGAC and the David C Driskell Center Reception & Symposium #davidcdriskell

This exhibit TRANSFORMS. Created by the Prince George’s Arts Council and the David C. Driskell Center for the Study of Visual Art and Culture of African Americans and the African Diaspora, Sacred Reflections: Creative Visions of Faith in Prince George’s County merges the personal with the collective and yet honors the difference between the one and the many.

I’ve been tweeting tonight at #davidcdriskell and am mesmerized by the people and the artwork here (When not drawn to write something down). There’s pride, joy, thankfulness, and yes…high expectations in this gallery: The people are used to the arts yet know how much we must cultivate them or they’ll disappear. The people here also live here in Prince George’s County: Lives, like the thread on a quilt, are part of the dialogues happening tonight. At some galleries, people have SUCH heads; here, people have SUCH hearts.

There’s a certain gold that can’t be expressed in quick writing–only in experience: So, I won’t try. I’ll just say, come to this exhibit!!! I’ve taken some photos and will post them below. I hope to come back after tonight so I can spend some time with some of my favorite works.

Please see the upcoming post I had made: “Sacred Reflections” at the David C. Driskell Center, July-August 2011 -Symposium/Reception 7/13 4-8pm
