Media Arts Exhibit Opening


Redlining Our Souls

Artist Laura Di Piazza (b. NYC) will exhibit work from her Redlining Our Souls (ROS) series, opening First Friday with the artist from 5-7pm and running through the month as the centerpiece of JAM’s March theme “Home in the World,” an examination of housing justice locally and globally.  The exhibition includes a slide projection highlighting racial covenants in property deeds that included restrictive clauses preventing white homeowners from re-selling or renting to Black Americans. The altered segregation redlining maps and descriptions are paired with the artist’s abstracted integrative paintings.
