The Re-Education

A Solo Exhibition by C. Harvey
School 33 Art Center Members Gallery
November 11, 2016–January 21, 2017

Opening Reception: Friday, November 11, 2016, 6–9pm

The Re-Education is an exhibition featuring mixed media and sculptural works, photography, and text in an introspective analysis of the internal and external forces that have helped condition the gifted black mind. Exploring
the emotional and psychological factors that cause and enforce the poverty mindset, the collection presents a new perspective on the narrative of institutional, social, societal, economic, and generational pathology that lend a hand in perpetuating the misunderstanding and exploitation of the 21st century black in America.

Through the visual language of The Re-Education, C. Harvey intends to break down the barriers of verbal communication between the privileged and the ghetto intellectual; the college educated and the street scholars —a timeline in graphic detail, mapping the mis-education and re-education of America’s brown boys and girls.

School 33 Art Center is dedicated to providing opportunities for artists through exhibitions, art classes, workshops, a Studio Artist Program, and special events. School 33 Art Center is a program of the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts and is supported in part by grants from the Mayor and the City Council of Baltimore, the Maryland State Arts Council, ABFAB Design and through private contributions to School 33 Art Center.

The Re-Education was selected as a 2017 Sondhiem Semi-finalist
