The Grumpy Bert resembles a quaint bookstore- the large storefront allows sunlight to come in and adds to the peacefulness of the shop. Danielle’s Dejesus- Solo Show, is a series of pop culture and influential people of color on United States currency. Though the exhibit is consolidated to one room, each drawing makes you stop and really think about these people and what significance they have had in your life.
Dejesus is known for using non-traditional canvases such as brick walls, Etch A Sketch screens and pumpkins. Dejesus’ work does have a running theme which is using different forms of art to express the people who influence her. Going through this exhibit can make one really think about who we consider influential people and why?
The exhibit will be open until August 14.
