Some Secondary School for Research students who just finished a UMP will have their work displayed alongside professional artists grappling with gentrification in Brooklyn in the exhibition Gentrification in Brooklyn: The Pink Elephant Speaks.
The exhibition will be held at the Museum of Contemporary African Diaspora Arts in Fort Greene. See the link to the museum’s flyer and click on exhibitions. All are invited to the exhibition opening on Thursday Feb. 4, 2010.
Courier Life newspapers published an article about the exhibit. In addition to the work in the exhibition, 5 of the students will be part of a MoCADA public program as a panel who discusses the impact of gentrification on themselves and their communities. This panel will take place on February 24, from 6-8pm at the Secondary School for Research in Park Slope. For more information on the event, check out the MoCADA calendar . Hope to see you soon!
