    This event has passed Get tickets

    Event description

    Discover the work of 2023 Chroma Zone muralist Sydney G. James, a proud Detroit native and co-founder of the biannual BLKOUT Walls street mural festival in Detroit during this hour-long conversation at women-owned Urban Growler Brewing Company on Friday, July 14 from 7:00 - 8:00PM. Facilitated by Forecast board member Maia Maiden

    Come early to enjoy great food and drink, and a chance to socialize before the talk. Doors to the Barrel room open at 6:15.

    Primarily known for large murals, Sydney’s work explores themes of the racial and gender positioning of the Black woman in America as “last” or “least among others” in society. Her portraits and murals seek to reposition this narrative of the Black woman’s visibility and importance bringing them to the forefront of the conversation.

    Be sure to check out Sydney’s work as she transforms the West wall of 602 Prior Avenue North for Chroma Zone the week of July 10.
