The Heart of Identity

The Heart of Identity

August 4 - October 30, 2016

The Heart of Identity features the photography and mixed media artwork of Ackeem Salmon. In this exhibit, Ackeem unpacks the many layers of his own identity, as well as the complexities and expectations of social identity.

The Heart of Identity signifies the minds and spirits that make each of us unique. Through his art, Ackeem Salmon questions why society tries to control peoples' identities - the way we think about ourselves, and others.

Friday, September 23 from 5 - 9 PM: Artist Talk with Ackeem Salmon

Friday, October 28 from 6 - 8 PM: Closing Reception
