    "The Likeness of Us" Art Exhibit

    08/17/2016
    5:02 PM

    In March of 2016,  Bernalillo County Cultural Services and Bernalillo County Youth Services Center presented “The Likeness of Us,” an exhibit of artwork featuring professional women artists and young women from the Youth Services Center (detention facility.)

    The exhibit ran March 9 - 26 in conjunction with National Women’s History Month, known locally as Women and Creativity Month. The exhibit was  located at the African American Performing Arts Center, 310 San Pedro NE on Expo New Mexico.

    “The Likeness of Us is a cross-generational visual dialogue between women and girls using art as the medium,”says Debbie Jo Almager, director of Parks and Recreation for Bernalillo County.  “The artwork is woven together in a meaningful way to create a tapestry of self-reflection, guidance, and creativity.” 

    Curated by Bernalillo County Public Art Program manager Nan Masland, artists Ophelia Cornet and vashti b moss, the exhibit was designed as a collaborative project with a chorus of 20 women artists who share their wisdom with girls in the juvenile detention center.  Muralist Nani Chacon painted an overall design spanning 162 feet comprised of 18 panels.  Responding to the prompt “What advice would you give your teenage self?”

    Twenty artists visually depicted their guidance for teen girls on half of the two-foot square panel. In response, the young women at the Youth Services Center then completed each panel during an artist-led workshop and offered advice to their future self. 

    An opening reception was held Friday, March 11 from 5:30 – 7 p.m., featuring the exhibiting artists, refreshments, and musical guest “Floozy.”
