Future Forward: Choices and Voices
May 17, 2022 — June 5, 2022
Margaret Shepherd Ray Family and Student Gallery
Future Forward: Choices and Voices celebrates collaboration and creative problem-solving while investigating themes and ideas around community, identity, botany, and contemporary art.
Inspired by Kehinde Wiley’s use of patterned backgrounds and stylish portraiture, YELLOWHAB student artists present their collaborative paintings and individual works of art. Every artist refined their creative expression and artistic agency through this process.
Each month during this school year, students from YELLOWHAB visited the Chrysler Museum of Art to explore the galleries and create works of art. Opened in 2021, YELLOWHAB is a micro-school in Norfolk currently serving third, fourth, and fifth grade learners in an immersive educational environment that sparks imagination and orbits the child with an ecosystem approach. The Chrysler Museum of Art is part of that community ecosystem for students, teachers, and families.
