Chukes - "Identity Theft" Social Change, Dialog of Art
Oct
28
7:00 PM19:00

Chukes - "Identity Theft" Social Change, Dialog of Art

Please join us for a powerful one-night event at Alkebulan Cultural Center. 

Renowned Altadena artist Chukes will show ten works from his most recent collection of new work titled, “Identity Theft”. This body of work challenges the misconceptions of human identity and the negative and deadly effects it has on Black people, and people of color.  

This is not an art exhibit; this is a gathering of minds to help educate and bring a positive social change through the dialogue of art.

 

The works of Michael Chukes will be going on display nationwide.
But before that takes place Chukes wants to display in his home town. You owe it to yourself to view these pieces before they leave So. Cal. Check
chukesart.com to get a feel for the talent and passion of this amazing local artist and join in on a very important dialog. - Riea Owens, Alkebulan Cultural Center Artist Gallery-Curator
