Event Description

Artist Charlotta Janssen showcases her exhibition by transporting the viewer back in time creating a living history and bringing awareness to a collective consciousness where segregation seemed normal and fighting it was a daunting task. To achieve this, Janssen re-imagines the mug shots of the Freedom Riders and Bus Boycotters using oil, acrylic, rust and collage in 87 augmented portraits. This event is free and open to the public until May 28.
