TIMES END

Opening Reception: Thursday, January 17th, 7:00-9:00pm.

As our world evolves, we see changes that inspire awe and fear in what is to come. With speculative fiction, afrofuturism, dystopian and utopian visions, artists are often the creators of society’s imagined future. TIMES END offers futurist views for our society, culture and planet.


Artists Included: Scott Andrew, Pat Broughton, Danielle Cartier, Peter Cehily, Sidney Church, Mairead Dambruch, Adam Farcus, Donté K. Hayes, Malik Lloyd, George Lorio, Jenn Meridian, Ronald Nigro, Robert Patrick, Kofi Perry, Areca Roe, Andre Rubin, Quaishawn Whitlock, and Hyla Willis.
