Vitus Shell Now We Here: The Path to Unconditional Self-Acceptance by Vitus Shell
This event has expired. This may be a recurring event, so please check the calendar in the future for updated occurrences.
Vitus Shell says, “for me, my work has to say something about change.” Through his work, Shell has become a spokesperson for the low-income community in which he was raised, promoting conversations that would normally go unheard or be ignored by outsiders. Positive self-image is one of his major talking points, which is why it’s important to him that his works reach beyond galleries and museums, especially to connect with African-American college students.
His paintings focus public attention on a long dormant subject that has become as relevant today as it was in the troubled 1960s. Three themes drive that message — irony, activism and his notion of black coolness.“
