REVERBERATIONS seeks to showcase the highs and lows of the Black experience in America, highlighting themes of family and community as well as marginalization and prejudice. Curator of the exhibition, Desmond Clark, shares about REVERBERATIONS in this way, “Can you hear the song that has been playing for over four centuries? Can you feel how it vibrates our nation? Can you see how it has affected your neighbor, your friends, and your family? These artists live this every day. They weave the stories of past BIPOC people with their own. They inform and shape the art and actions that will come after. The rich history passed down for generations displayed in the images in this exhibition do not just echo; they reverberate.”
