This Weekend and for Black History Month: ARTCURIAN: "Artists Speaking for the Spirits" Mural Project/Exhibit and Artist Talks

"Artists Speaking for the Spirits," an exhibition of mural-sized paintings
by 40 artists of African ancestry. The show, thought to be the largest of its kind involving artists of color, is the premier project of ARTCURIAN, a groundbreaking movement in which artists and social agencies collaborate to deliver services to those in need.

The forty participating artists were invited and accepted the invitation because their works have consistently spoke to the power of art to heal, inspire, empower, define, convey sublime beauty, and positively transform the individual and community.

ARTCURIAN organizers introduced the healing power of art into the various therapeutic settings at the Addiction Research and Treatment Corporation and its affiliate, Urban Resource Institute (ARTC-URI).

- Opening weekend exhibition hours are: Fri, 11-5, Sat and Sun 3-6.
- Audiences will enjoy artist talks at 4 p.m. each Sunday in February. First up is "New Beginnings," a talk with artists new to mural-painting and discussion of great muralists of color in history.
- The remaining Black History Month schedule is: Thurs-Fri 11-5 and Sun 3-6.
