‘Verified’ looks at not just what people claim as their identity, but who gives them permission to claim that identity and how they navigate spaces where that permission might be denied. The exhibit explores black identity, but also looks at whiteness and how it can form a sense of self. Combining works from artists with a variety of backgrounds, ‘Verified’ creates a dialogue that mirrors the current socio-political exploration of identity, both for people of color and those less melaninated.

Regular gallery visits outside the opening are by appointment only.
Please keep in mind that the event is at a more “rustic” location. High-healed shoes are not ideal; bug spray is.
