Krista Franklin, “Fantastic” (2014)
Took some in-process photos of Krista’s installation work, her final major work as artist-in-residence at the University of Chicago’s Arts + Public Life Initiative. The exhibit, called “Testimony,” co-features Franklin, Andres L. Hernandez, and David Boykin, and opens tonight at the Logan Center. Opening reception is from 6-8pm.
"Rise. Shine. Reach outside yourself. Wake and discover the dreams you are capable of when you aren’t sleeping. May they keep you up at night. Marvel at how big they are and witness what they can become. Grow with your ambitions. Flex on those who doubt. Nourish no bad seeds. No black can’ts. No black don’ts. No black maybes. You will. Stretch so that the tension is too great-Become greater. You do not have to dance to choreograph your next steps. Just make sure you get your sun. Black boys. Black girls. Your cage is too small to hold you forever. Show them"
