The grand opening of "Break Glass: A Conversation to End Hate," a collection of works by V. L. Cox, goes up Friday, September 27, at 4 p.m., at the Delta Cultural Center.The Center is located at 141 Cherry Street, in historic downtown Helena, Ark. Hors d’oeuvres will be served and admission is free. This exhibition is a powerful-- if not poignantly painful— assemblage of art pieces which denounce bigotry, racism and the social injustice that exists in society today. Cox’s work is rooted in the belief in the importance of conversation and its potential to help mend our increasingly polarized communities.
This collection is a striking representation of the artist’s conviction that sharing one's experiences and perspectives with civility and respect, as well as listening to those we may perceive as being different can strengthen individuals and communities of people. Cox who was born in Arkansas, where she also grew up, considers herself to be a civil rights/human rights artist and an advocate for social justice.
The exhibit will be up through December 28, 2019.The museum’s hours of operation are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.For more information, contact Adrien Corbin at 870.338.4350, or firstname.lastname@example.org (Photo:“End Hate,” the Doors Series).
