Get To “In Transit”
If you haven’t had the opportunity to head to the Oak Cliff Cultural Center to check out the “Oak Cliff: In Transit” exhibit, we say “Get there!” Three young artists — Mathew Barnes, Orlando Sanchez-Lugo, and Marcello Pope (aka “Rosie Lee”) collaborated on this fascinating exhibit, depicting their take on how Oak Cliff is undergoing a substantial transition.
The artists each showed their views through nine portraits (three a piece) and one collaborative painting.
The exhibit’s opening reception on July 14 (which unfortunately corresponded with Bastille on Bishop) was a huge success, according to Barnes.
“We had well over 200 people come through for the reception,” he said. “And based on the feedback, everyone enjoyed the art.
Here we’re giving you a sneak peek of three of the artists’ portraits. For the real deal, you’ll have to head to the OC Cultural Center.
