Live Events Throughout The Magic City and Beyond

This Week and Weekend's Musts



Chris Friday: "Good Times"

In her new exhibit, Chris Friday showcases large-scale drawings of black bodies at leisure – playing, dancing, resting. However, what visitors will notice when they view “GoodTimes” is that the figures in Friday’s impressive drawings are turned inward – slightly away from the viewers, keeping parts of themselves hidden. As Friday explains, George Floyd changed everything for her.
