ATH4BLM at the Lyndon House Arts Center Resistance & Resilience Exhibition

Thursday, February 11, 2021


The Lyndon House Arts Center will host a pop up exhibition of University of Georgia student work organized by ATH4BLM Initiative entitled Resistance & Resilience, in acknowledgement of Black History Month 2021. This show will be on view from February 11 - March 1, 2021. 

The Athens for Black Lives Matter Initiative is a collective actively working toward a better, more prosperous future for Black Athenians. ATH4BLM believes in the power of community as a catalyst for long-term change and the gravity of uplifting our Black community as a focal point for the roads ahead. 

From the organizers: "We are so excited to announce this exhibition with the Lyndon House Arts Center. This exhibition is curated in collaboration with Lyndon House. These works, along with others will be displayed at the Dodd Galleries later this spring.  The Athens for Black Lives Matter Initiative has always been inspired by the use of art to unite people in a common cause whether that be music, poetry, or photography, among others. As we look to the future and hope to inspire change in the community around us, we want to encourage the creation of art as a means to express resistance and resilience.”

The show is on view through March 1, 2021.  The exhibition is free and open to the public.  Children must be accompanied by an adult. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
