A New Permanent Exhibition at Camba Literacy Center
Benefit Preview Reception
Tuesday, April 21, 2015, 5-8pm
Tim Okamura, a painter of Canadian Japanese heritage and a longtime Brooklyn resident, skillfully portrays the rich, multicultural communities of his urban surroundings. His compelling portraits will beautify the Literacy Center, reflect CAMBA’s diverse constituency, and instill confidence in a student body that is embracing a new language and culture.
Meet the artist and curator at this special benefit preview tomorrow!
Brooklyn Lives: Selected Prints. The Art of Tim Okamura is Art Connects New York’s first solo artist presentation and our 35th permanent contemporary art placement at one of New York’s social service agencies.
Proceeds from this event will support Art Connects’ mission to continue to bring contemporary art to traditionally underserved audiences. All of Art Connects’ exhibitions, and the educational programs which support them, are delivered free of charge to our constituents.
Come celebrate with us and thanks in advance for helping Art Connects New York bring Good Work Everywhere!
