SHARP Opening Eric Mapp & Lehna Huie | FREE EVENT

Saturday, August 9, 2014 | 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art

Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden invites you to the 2014 SHARP Artist Reception featuring Eric Mapp & Lehna Huie. ¬†Eric Mapp focuses on “FFAM: Fashion, Film, Art and Music” as his vision for artistic expression. Eric Mapp utilizes his pieces to convey stories and current events that affect the community.

 

Lehna Huie is¬†committed to the fusion of arts and social change. Her belief in the power of “multi-vocal” art draws through the rhythmical movements of her three homes: NYC, current; Jamaica, familial; and the African Diaspora; ancestral in her work.

This exhibition is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Edward & Sally Van Lier Fund through New York Community Trust.
