BCA Center Summer Exhibitions Opening Reception

Join BCA to celebrate the opening of Outstanding: Contemporary Self-Taught Art and Hyunsuk Erickson: Thingumabob Society, focus exhibition, Faith Ringgold: Jazz Stories, as well as the announcement of the 2023 Diane Gabriel Visual Artist Award winner.

Outstanding features the work of eight regional self-taught artists reshaping contemporary artistic discourse as they explore unconventional paths to creative expression.

Hyunsuk Erickson’s whimsical installation Thingumabob Society merges sculpture and craft traditions to create an imaginative and hopeful space that invites us to collectively reflect on relationships between nature, culture, and ourselves.

in conjunction with BCA’s Jazz Lab programming, Faith Ringgold draws on personal and collective history with her Jazz Stories series, which celebrates the music that has provided her with a lifetime of creative inspiration.
