Fourth Friday: Jacob Church’s “Sunshine: Prologue”

Friday, May 24
5:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Indianapolis Liberation Center

Suggested donation: $5-10

The next entry in our Fourth Friday series, “Unleashing the creativity of the masses,” features the original exhibition of a new collection of works by Jacob Church. The first of a two-part series, “Sunshine: Prologue,” includes paintings, drawings, and wearable pieces by the self-taught visual artist and designer. While his artwork addresses a range of topics, Church uses the social and physical surrounding environment to transform his hometown of Richmond, Indiana into a bustling site of color at his annual art festival at a gallery just outside the town.

Church’s art challenges us to overcome the alienating conditions of our society that divide and atomize us in myriad ways. By doing so, it can help change our perception that our battles for survival are individual ones into the reality that they are collective ones and that, by creating unity, we can overcome any obstacle that stands in the way of piece or blocks our sunshine. Church’s work organically connects to the Indianapolis Liberation Center, which serves as a community collective to bring together our different struggles and eliminate the brutal conditions of exploitation and oppression.

All are invited to the opening reception of “Sunshine: Prologue” at the Liberation Center’s Fonseca-Du Bois Gallery powered by Arte Mexicano en Indiana. The Fonseca-Du Bois Gallery is completely funded by the community, for the community: it is your liberated space completely free from outside influence from the rich. To enable our community to determine what art is or can be, please make a suggested donation of $5-10 here or at the door so we can keep the people’s gallery sustainable.

* No one turned away for lack of funds and those who can are encouraged to pitch in more.
