OLCDC's 2015 Art of Transformation "Through the Eyes of Others" exhibit runs through December 11
See the Miami Herald's "A transformation in Opa-locka through art," which describes the "Through the Eyes of Others" exhibit, quoting curator Tumelo Mosaka: "How does one shift the perceptions of history? Politically, it's important to intervene and try to change the structural problems, but it's also important to change perception," Mosaka said. "One way of doing that is through art."
The exhibit runs from Friday, November 6, through Friday, December 11, 2015.
