Opening Reception Friday October 8th 5-6:30pm
SPONSORED BY THE HUNTINGTON ARTS COUNCIL
The COLOR OF FREEDOM is an art show at the Julie Keyes Gallery in Sag Harbor. The art was lovingly created by the children of the Bridgehampton Child Care & Recreational Center. The works were done on the theme of freedom and cultural identity. This exhibition will shine a light on the rich cultural heritage and diversity of our extraordinary and unique community. It will show how the children of the Center interpret the concept, as well as interpreting the continuing struggles for freedom. Our community has a rich history, mix of cultures, identities, and traditions, which the children have explored.
This is an exhibition of some of the student’s work, monies donated will support educational arts enrichment programs at The Center. This is an opportunity for the community to get to meet our children and see a glimpse of what happens at The Center. Visitors will also learn a bit about the History of the Center from 1954 to the present. Please come and learn how The Center serves the community, mostly the African American, Native American, and Latino members of our area. The exhibition will be a reflection of The Center’s uniqueness and the rich cultural heritage & diversity.
