Jacob Church’s “Sunshine: Prologue” closing reception

6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Indianapolis Liberation Center

Suggested donation: $5-10

Don’t miss the opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of Jacob Church’s artwork, a blend of mindfulness, reflection, and vibrant colors. Experience the closing reception of his exhibit, “Sunshine: Prologue,” on Saturday, June 22, at the Indianapolis Liberation Center’s Fonseca-DuBois Gallery.

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 many topics, Church uses the social and physical 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 is a powerful tool that compels viewers to confront society’s alienating conditions, fostering a sense of unity in the face of adversity. His work exemplifies the strength of solidarity, demonstrating that we can overcome any obstacle together. This resonates deeply with the mission of the Indianapolis Liberation Center, a community collective committed to uniting diverse struggles and eradicating the brutal conditions of exploitation and oppression.

During the closing reception, attendees will hear final remarks from the artist, insights from representatives of local arts organizations on how art and creativity can strengthen our community, and reflections from Indianapolis Liberation Center volunteers on the role of art in our struggle for social justice.

All are invited to the “Sunshine: Prologue” closing reception 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.
