Opening to the public Saturday, January 24th from 7-10pm, Inner State Gallery is proud to present “We Have A Dream” a group exhibition featuring more than 40 emerging Detroit artists, each paying homage to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s historical “I Have A Dream” speech.
“In celebration of Dr. King’s legacy my goal was to curate a group exhibition that would shine a light on local artists and their dreams that are shaping the Detroit art scene,” curator Roula David said.
This original piece of artwork comes signed by Christopher Batten and with an Original Artwork Letter of Provenance from Inner State Gallery.
