Betty Leacraft Featured in Collective Conscious at AAMP

 

Betty Leacraft (ACG '16, '14, '09, LTA '11, WOO '99) is among the featured artists in the summer 2018 group exhibition, produced in conjunction with the AAMP Residency for Art and Social Change, which strives to advance the work artists of color from around the Philadelphia region while forging and deepening AAMP’s relationships and impact in Philadelphia neighborhoods. The featured artists will be gleaned primarily from the Residency nominees, who use their work to process or respond to the constantly changing socio-political and cultural landscape. 
 
From Selma to Starbucks, these artists are reimagining “safe spaces” for black and brown people on an interplanetary level, documenting the effects of displacement and gentrification, mining their personal histories, and actively pushing out of their studios and into the communities not only as art makers, but as change makers.

 

The exhibition will run until August 26 at the African American Museum of Philadelphia.
