Dominican York Proyecto GRAFICA’s new portfolio Comunidad | Community was revealed on Sunday at an opening reception that buzzed with an incredible amount of energy. Some DYPG members had met some Word Up volunteers before—but there hadn’t before been this much interaction between both groups’ members all at once (is that even possible with everyone who works at Word Up regularly?!). Both DYPG and Word Up share one member, who took the lead up setting up the exhibition, though the collectives’ collective wish is to keep up long-term engagement with each other at all angles.

A book of writing by the Word Up collective, about, or inspired by, each of the prints in Dominican York Proyecto GRAFICA’s portfolio, will be produced later this summer, and an artist talk will take place during the course of this exhibition. Please stop in to see the new work gracing our gallery walls!
