The Black Experience: His & Hers Art Show Keeps Growing

The February 2011 art show at Iona College: The Black Experience: His & Hers A Tribute to Black History exhibited at The Brother Kenneth Chapman Gallery in the Iona College Arts Centers show was amazing.  With local artists Charles McGill, Tania Guerrera (me), Bernard Cameron, Atiim Turnbull, Evierobbie, Earlie Richardson and curator Peridot SmithAnd it just keeps growing.
The Black Experience: His & Hers was well attended, entertaining, educational and full of positive intellectual vibes. 
Numerous reviews and write-ups helped this show become a success.  I was happy to see many New Rochelle community members attend. I have happily been stopped by people around town letting me know that they attended the show, and of course how much they enjoyed and learned from it.  
Another thing people emphasized is how needed it is for New Rochelle to have events like this. Around 200 New Rochelle High School students attended the show as a field trip.
The art just keeps expanding with an art video by Nancy-Jo Johnson that uses the artwork and music from the show. The video creates a montage with the Juggaknot song: Use your Confusion, music track production by Kevin Smith.
Enjoy this video and look out for a cameo appearance by Rasta Hip-Hop artist Jolomite (previously Marco Polo) from InI Mighty Lockdown.
