The Opa-Locka Community Development Corporation ( OLCDC ) presents the fourth annual Art of Transformation November 6th through December 4th at the ARC in historic Opa Locka, Florida. Featuring art world heavy hitters Hank Willis Thomas, Dred Scott, Bernard Williams and Andre Leon Gray. Curated by Tumelo Moska, the exhibition, Through the Eyes of Others, aims to provide a critical platform for re-imaging the past, present and future possibilities of blackness as something more complex than race. While images of black people continue to reinforce negative attitudes, the exhibition showcases the strength and resilience of a community that is finding unity through art. With events such as Art of Transformation, OLCDC hopes to achieve its goal of transforming Opa-Locka into one of the region’s better-known centers of the arts, culture and living. This exhibition is a vital part of gaining awareness for a community of choice where people want to live, work, play and create, which is made possible through OLCDC’s investment in the community.
To fete this community of choice, The Opa-Locka Community Development Corporation will offer four days of events.
