Essential Figure

BCA’s summer exhibition, Essential Figure, is now open at the BCA Center.

Essential Figure explores the diverse identities and narratives of people through intersections of race, class, and gender. These artists enliven and expand the figurative tradition as they simultaneously reflect shifting social and cultural perspectives. Save the date for BCA’s artist reception on Friday, July 12.
