Bay Street Celebrates Black History Month With Afrofuturism Exhibit

Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor presents an exhibition to celebrate Black History Month in its lobby gallery, which is open to the public and free of charge. The exhibition “Regional Artists Explore Afrofuturism” is co-curated by Dr. Georgette Grier-Key and Michael A. Butler in collaboration with Bay Street Theater.

“Shadow of a Self Portrait” by Michael A. Butler

The exhibition will open with a reception on Saturday, February 10, from 2 to 5 PM and run through Sunday, March 24, during Bay Street Theater Lobby hours Tuesdays to Saturdays, 11 AM to 5 PM, and during Bay Street performances.

The exhibition explores the ever-expansive aesthetic practice and the multidisciplinary world of Afrofuturism. Afrofuturism reimagines an alternate reality, reinterprets a distressed past, reclaims the resiliency of people from the African Diaspora, and presents a future of liberated expressions through art, music, literature, film, fashion, and space.

This exhibition features noted artists Michael A. Butler, Judith Henriques-Adams, James P. Ward, and Dr. Nichelle Rivers. Works of art will also be on loan from the private collections of Michael A. Butler, Dr. Martin A. Butler, and the Eastville Community Historical Society.
