Scholars from the Our Story Project Research Program, implemented out of the office of Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Initiatives, will be engaged in a 4-months long art development project with internationally known artist Leroi Johnson. Mr. Johnson, a successful lawyer, and artist will have his work debuted at the Burchfield Penney Art Center in November of 2022.
Alongside his artwork will be the featured art pieces of BPS scholars from the Our Story Project, which will depict narrations of their own lived experiences through the visual arts. As an aside, Mr. Johnson is the brother of the late, world-renowned, musical artist, and Buffalonian, Rick James. Please see attached flyer for his piece entitled: " The Arrival" and for more details.
