When: EXHIBIT: APRIL 5-25, 2022OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, APRIL 8, 5:00-8:00PM, PART OF ARTS NIGHT OUT NORTHAMPTON Sponsored in part by River Valley Co-op and Downtown Sounds Workers Co-op The HEALERS Project is part of a larger body of work by Carlos REC McBride that has evolved over the past five years. Using photography, audio, and video, McBride has been documenting the challenges men of color face in the streets, in school, the workplace, and in the prison system. The HEALERS Project considers the mechanisms that evolve out of survival, that allow for men of color to navigate tangible experiences of microaggressions, racial battle fatigue, depression, and mental illness. This photo exhibit also introduces works from emerging artists Eric Alvarez and Johny "MOYO" Torres - Cruz, and is a snapshot of those personal narratives, cultural and social analysis and educational discourse, that offer a glimpse of what it means to HEAL. Please join us on Friday, April 8 from 5-8pm for an opening reception with refreshments, live music, and a chance to meet the artists!
