Art Scene: A walk through Kenosha Creative Space’s ‘Art + Protest’ exhibit

KENOSHA ⸺ Black lives are still an important topic in conversation and in art in the city of Kenosha ⏤ regardless of who believes they matter or not. 

On Thursday, Kenosha Creative Space unveiled a new exhibit, ‘Art + Protest,’ that will be open to the public until May 9.

Though the exhibit comes from the Portrait Society of Milwaukee, it will likely cause Kenoshans to have flashbacks to last summer.

However, Creative Space Executive Director Francisco Loyola says the events that took place here are not unique to the city. In fact, similar things took place all over the nation at the same time.

Therefore, we were one of many.

“This chapter in the life of Kenosha has been happening all across the country,” he said.

Take a walk through ‘Art + Protest’ with Loyola and Observer founder Daniel Thompson in the video above. Or look through some still frame shots of the exhibit in the gallery below.
