The Krikorian Gallery Presents..
Catch the Fire

On view February 1 – 29, 2024
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 3, 4-6PM

The Worcester Black History Project invited black artists to respond to the theme of Catch the Fire. Viewers will observe how each artist interpreted this theme. Additionally, it will offer viewers the opportunity to reflect on the theme of Black History Month 2024, African American in the Arts and the mediums used by black people to resist oppression while simultaneously producing beautiful art.

Catch the Fire
The exhibition draws on the inspiring words of poet, activist, and educator, Sonia Sanchez. It is a poem written to her community that both inspires Black folk to remember their history and the historical injustices they experienced…
I say where is your fire? Can’t you smell it coming out of your past, while reminding them to reclaim their beauty…Where is our beautiful fire that gave light to the world? The fire of pyramids; The fire that burned through the holes of slave ships and made us breathe… Ultimately, it encourages hope and living and loving joyously… Catch the fire and burn with eyes that see our souls: WALKING.
Hey. Brother/Brotha. Sister/Sista.
Here is my hand. Catch the fire…and live.
