'Bridging the Legacy'

Bridging the Legacy is an intergenerational exhibit celebrating the ingenuity, influence, and creativity of East End based families, past, present, and future. Using a multimedia approach, this exhibit showcases the importance of family, how talents and skills are invested and passed down generation to generation. Discovering the parallels of artistic and cultural expressions of the selected artists frame the dozens and dozens of narratives found within the historic East End neighborhood. Unearthing the past to gain a greater understanding of our shared history and future is the basis of the work created for Bridging the Legacy. 

Embracing the lessons, values, and experiences modeled by previous generations, featured artists are challenged to produce a collection of work that showcases the legendary work of the past in relation to their contemporary interpretation.
