“See Us” art display portraying Black American struggle in society at Art League of OC

OCEAN CITY, Md.- University of Maryland Eastern Shore students and faculty are filling the walls in a gallery at the Art League of Ocean City this month.

We are told the group will be displaying an exhibit called “See Us” which includes paintings, sculptures, installations, graphic design, and more.

The exhibit portrays the Black American struggle in today’s society.

The Art League said their mission is to promote dialogue and break down barriers in the community and they are hoping to do that with this exhibit.

“Our vision as an arts center is to be catalyst for change and to be able to spark ideas in the community,” Rina Thaler, Executive Director Art League of OC, said.

“I think it’s very important for young students, future artists to see that there are people that look like them in the community that have done work like this in case you’re looking for a career,” Pierre Bowins, UMES Professor, said.

We are told that there are several other exhibits that can be seen as well, including art of fashion.

The artwork will be displayed until November 29.
