Ouachita Baptist University’s Department of Visual Arts will host Chrystal Seawood in a guest exhibit, “Boys to Black Men,” Jan. 25-Feb. 26. The exhibit will be held in the university’s Rosemary Gossett Adams Gallery in Moses-Provine Hall and is free and open to the public. A closing reception and artist lecture will be held Feb. 26.

“Boys to Black Men” responds to the highly publicized shooting deaths among unarmed, black males at the hands of police. Seawood surveyed a group of black teen boys from her hometown of Forrest City, Ark., to understand how these national incidents influence the boys’ relationships with law enforcement in their community and how the incidents affect their self-image as emerging black men in America. The exhibit is a visual reference of the survey, seeking to offer a sense of candor and intimacy not available through the mainstream media.
