Exhibition open: December 11 - 20, 2019
Tuesday - Saturday, 12:00 - 6:00 PM
The Youth Advisory Board’s collaborative installation–Souvenirs for Mars–is about introspection and communal care. YAB seeks to create a time capsule that examines the past while contemplating an uncertain tomorrow, teetering between being overwhelmed and whelmed.
Yaas Queen is a show presented by the Young Queens on the Rise program at Mission Girls. The Young Queens’ exhibition centers on ideas of female empowerment, sisterhood and transforming the gallery into a space of experimentation and self-awareness.
