In September, Jacob Lawrence (the gallery) opened a forward-thinking exhibition to celebrate the 100th anniversary of (the person) Jacob Lawrence's birth. Utopia Neighborhood Club promised a series of exhibits and programs that emphasize participation, and imagine the possible (even utopian) future of this art gallery. This iteration offers responses from students—and invites "proposals for events that could take place in the Jake, new ideas for the operation of the Jake, manifestos concerning the Jake's stated goals, etc."
The opening reception will feature remarks from curators and artists, performances, and a quilting session.
