In a partnership with Prince Georgeâ€™s African American Museum and Cultural Center (PGAAMCC), Vivid Gallery is producing 7/8â€¦9. In thisÂ mixed media exhibition, artists are highlighting narratives of the Black American suburban experience. Black Americans are presented frequently as homogeneous urban people in mass media; this show challenges that notion by presenting nuanced representations of the Black experience in suburban settings. This exhibition looks to investigate how we define the â€śAmerican Dreamâ€ť and if the pursuit of that aspiration incorporates elements that affirm our Blackness. The exhibition engages other other unifying themes, including: migration, place-making, regional identity, family, political incorporation, education, and childhood.
