Join Brew House Association in celebrating opening weekend of the new exhibition, Roots Run Deep: A Contemporary Survey of African American Hair Culture.
Curated by Tara Fay Coleman.
Produced through the Prospectus program at Brew House Association.
Featuring the work of 16 Black artists, stylists, and cultural producers, Roots Run Deep looks at the ways in which Black hairstyles are tied to tradition and examines the historic influence of the past on modern styling practices today. Through photography, sculpture, and mixed media works, artists demonstrate how hair is used as a medium to articulate our creativity across the diaspora.
Featured artists include Nakeya Brown, Jordan Coyne, Kenyatta Crisp, Nick Drain, Quinn Hunter, Mia Marshall, Brianna Mims, Steven Montinar, Ayanna Nayo, Sharon Norwood, Mathias Rushin, Sharrell Rushin, Dominique Scaife, and Shori Sims.
To limit capacity during opening weekend, we are offering timed tickets.
