Opening Reception | Debra DeGregorio: co≈rrelate & Raja Belle Freeman: Consider This Your Trigger Warning

Join us for an inspiring evening at our Opening Reception for two exceptional artists, Raja Belle Freeman and Debra DeGregorio, whose creations delve into profound themes that resonate with our shared human experience.

Join us for an inspiring evening at our Opening Reception on November 10 from 5:00 – 7:30 pm. This special event will showcase two exceptional artists, Raja Belle Freeman and Debra DeGregorio, whose creations delve into profound themes that resonate with our shared human experience.

Raja Belle Freeman presents “Consider This Your Trigger Warning,” an evocative exploration of the pressing issue of police brutality. Through her powerful poetry, Raja sheds light on the desensitization of the media to the destruction of people of color and the seeming disposability of black and brown bodies. Her poem, “A Note on Trigger Warnings at the Beginning of Poems,” serves as the heartbeat of this exhibit. Raja ingeniously combines visual art elements in the gallery, employing a play of red and blue lights that reveal different words and images under each color. This striking technique invites viewers to confront their perspectives and critically dialogue about this crucial issue.
