We invite you to join us for an intimate conversation with artist Billy Colbertto discuss his multimedia exhibition, The Enduring Projection. The show deals with the depiction of African-Americans throughout history and the challenges people of color have endured in controlling their image in print and film. Colbert will convert the gallery into an archival/anthropological environment which explores the positive and challenges the negative archetypes and stereotypes that have hindered and haunted their placement in American culture.
