The Columbia University Alumni Club of South Florida and curator Ludlow Bailey (SIPA '85) invite you to a networking event and closing party for Forces of Nature: Bounce and Flow at the ARC in Opa-locka.
The event features a multi-media art exhibition that highlights the visual and performance artistry of Judy Sayfie, Elaine Defibaugh, Sheila Elias and Hattie Mae Williams. Curator Ludlow Bailey says, “Forces of Nature: Bounce and Flow is a visual feast, full of color, fantasy, creative power and transformational energy." This exhibit is in honor of Women's History Month, and was presented by the Opa-locka Community Development Corporation in conjunction with curator Ludlow Bailey and CADA Conversations.
We encourage our Columbia alumni community to attend, network with each other, meet the artists, and see some of the great redevelopment work that's happening in Opa-locka. Music by Soundscape Designer T Lyfe. Light refreshments and wine will be served.
Please RSVP below. There is no cost, but a $10 donation is encouraged, which can be paid online (DONATE HERE), or at the door. Proceeds will benefit the ARC.
