Event description
Activists Jamala Rogers and Percy Green to be Honored at “Art is Labor” Exhibit Opening Reception

About this Event

“Art Is Labor,” an exhibit that speaks of the workers of our time and recognizes artists as workers, will open December 7, 2019, with a cocktail reception honoring life-long social justice champions Jamala Rogers and Percy Green.

This juried exhibit is presented by Bread and Roses Missouri in partnership with Webster University’s Arcade Contemporary Projects Gallery.

Dail Chambers, multi-disciplinary artist and consultant, curates the exhibit. Ms. Chambers is known nationally for her work which responds to history, struggle issues, ancestor mythology, and imagines wholism as a creative future. Contemporary artwork will be curated alongside collections of historically significant art, ephemera, text, and artifacts. Artwork created by young people who participate in the Bread and Roses Youth Initiative will also be featured.

Doors open at 6:00 pm. Starting at 7:30 p,m., the program will include the Workers’ Theater group performing a preview sketch from the 2020 Workers’ Opera. The ceremony to honor Ms. Rogers and Mr. Green will be followed by a paddle auction to support Bread and Roses’ social justice programming and educational initiatives.

Hors d'oeuvres, cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages will be served.

Celebrating its fifth year since inception, Bread and Roses Missouri uses an arts lens to examine social and economic justice issues in all our programming. We believe that cultural and creative expression are a means to affect deep and lasting social change. www.breadandrosesmo.org/events-and-performances
