Crown Heights Gold: Examining Race Relations and Healing in Crown Heights Opening Reception
July 28, 2011
6PM - 8PM

The Skylight Gallery is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition Crown Heights Gold: Examining Race Relations and Healing in Crown Heights, Brooklyn During the 20 Years Since the 1991 Riot, curated by Dexter Wimberly. Using contemporary art as a vehicle to foster dialogue and remembrance, this exhibition commemorates the 20th anniversary of the Crown Heights Riot, and explores the transformation of the community since the harrowing incident. The multi-media exhibition will feature painting, drawing, photography, mixed media, video and sculpture created by roughly twenty New York-based visual artists. To compliment the exhibition, a calendar of public programs is being planned in collaboration with community leaders and organizations. The activities will look at the work done in the neighborhood post-riot, as well as the ongoing state of cooperative efforts to encourage continued inter-group communication and understanding.

Skylight Gallery Hours: Wednesday to Friday from 11AM to 6PM and on Saturday from 1PM to 6PM.
