Sankofa: Looking Back, Moving Forward

January 1, 1970 @ 12:00 am

Sankofa is an Adinkra symbol from Ghana, which translates as, “to look into ones past in order to move forward”.  Sankofa: Looking Back, Moving Forward is comprised of drawings and prints by artist Steve Prince. His work offers a candid look into America’s past and challenges us to look deeper for meaning and understanding of how we have collectively arrived at this juncture in history. The art challenges us to not only be cognitive of the history and the scars we have sustained, it posits a message of hope for communal renewal if we dare work together to solve the deep-set communal issues.Artist Steve Prince will be in residence: May 13-17
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and Tuesday/Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
This exhibit is part of Muscarelle on the Move!
