Although Gallery 51's doors are closed to the public, we are excited to bring you alternative programming. As we all continue to adapt, this page too will be updated to reflect changes. We thank you for your continuing support and look forward to your participation.
ALL PROGRAMS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE
Many of our past programs are also available on the BCRC YouTube playlist.
Sunday June 6: The Art for Social Justice Project Virtual Show Opening
This show was created by the young adults of the Arts in Recovery for Youth program to promote social justice and open community conversations. Through digital art, poetry and painting, the artists have chosen to express themes of racial injustice and political oppression, violence against women, bullying, rights of LGBTQIA+ persons, freedom of gender expression, body image and gender equality. The young adults showcase their art alongside the art of five mentoring social activists in the art world.
The AIRY young adult artists are Rachael Bentz, Kiara Bresett, Molly Harrington, Jack Kelly, and Jalencia Melendez. The mentoring guest artists are Katy Holt, Em Reim Ifrach, Caroline Kelley, Pops Peterson, and Marney Schorr.
Funding for the Art for Social Justice project was provided by New England Grassroots Environment Fund and the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation. For more info about AIRY's Art for Social Justice project please visit www.airyedu.com.
