Hooded Truths at the University YMCA

Tomorow, Thursday, August 25 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., the University YMCA will host a reception and gallery talk with Candace Hunter. Light refreshments will be served. Hunter is the artist of HOODED TRUTHS, a cornucopia of images, ideas and personas all swathed in the costume of 21st Century America: the hoodie.

In the exhibit Hunter explores the history of Blackness in this country, which she describes as ‘”a painful and complicated affair, brightened by the indomitable spirit of countless fathers, mothers, teachers, clergy and artists who continue to shed light on this country’s ‘Hooded Truths.'”

HOODED TRUTHS is on view in Murphy Gallery of the University YMCA from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday – Friday from August 25, 2016 through October 7, 2016.
