This exhibition provides visitors with a lens to witness a Black woman navigating higher education — Pittsburgh-based artist, muralist and activist, Kamara Townes (pictured), known professionally as Wavy Wednesday.

Featuring paintings, sculptures and installations that incorporate collage elements, her subject matter references popular culture to broaden comments on race, womanism and identity. Painted in an Afrofuturist style, Townes’ autobiographical works serve as a rigorous commentary of Black identity, depicting representations that range from being adequately rebellious to thoroughly politically engaged and enraged.

Presented as part of the Three Rivers Arts Festival, a project of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust sponsored by financial firm Dollar Bank.
