The Artist's Voice featuring Ebony Patterson | 7:00 PM
Adult Programs Photo courtesy the artist
Please join us for a groundbreaking conversation with Ebony Patterson. Featured in Caribbean: Crossroads of the World,
Ebony Patterson's work explores an area of popular culture, specifcally
examining the identity of a powerful demographic in the island context,
young black men. Ebony Patterson's artwork is very much a reflection on
the ways in which young black men shape their identities within the
Jamaican dancehall culture.
This program is free with museum
admission. RSVPs are required. Seating is limited. Studio Museum members
