The Collections: Black and Blue


Combining elements of Glass Lantern Slide Night and Reading the Black Library, The Writers’ Workshop at Stony Island Arts Bank is hosting “The Collections: Black and Blue.”

Building from words, images, and sounds found in the Arts Bank’s collections, themes of assimilation, language, social identity, spirituality and political power are explored through participating artists’ original works.


The event culminates with audience participation in the staged reading of the play, Crak’n Up, by Pamela Smith. Viewer discretion advised.
