Thursday, January 17: Opening Reception for TIMES END exhibition

As our world evolves, we see changes that inspire awe and fear in what is to come. With speculative fiction, afrofuturism, dystopian and utopian visions, artists are often the creators of society’s imagined future. Times End seeks artworks that offer futurist views for our society, culture and planet.

Times End is juried by Alisha B. Wormsley. alishabwormsley.com
