what’s INSIDE HER never dies… a Black Woman’s Legacy

Being a black woman is a journey oftentimes filled with pain and sorrow; so many have had to grieve and mourn the loss of loved ones: fathers, brothers, sons and daughters.

The moment has come to pay tribute to these unique figures of our time, and Art is the perfect sanctuary to value their courage, pride and resilience.

This exhibit will present throughout portraiture, drawing, photography, and installation the beauty, and the emotions of these heroes whom inspire us generation after generation.
