Sandra Bridges: Southern Roots - Revisited
February 1 - March 16, 2018
Oakton celebrates Black History Month with a visual journey by artist Sandra Bridges through the lives of African Americans. Her work resonates with a sepia quality that harkens back to 20th century portrait photography, emphasizing her subject’s humanity and dispelling stereotypes. The artist captures ordinary people as well as legendary musicians. A Chicago born artist and educator, Bridges was awarded the Black Excellence Award from the African American Alliance of Artists in Chicago in 2015. A year later she exhibited “Southern Roots” at the Chicago Cultural center.
Public Reception: Thursday, February 1, 5 - 8 p.m.
