Opening Celebration | Elizabeth Colomba: Repainting the Story

Sunday, March 20, 2022 @ 1:00 pm to @ 4:00 pm



Celebrate the opening of Elizabeth Colomba: Repainting the Story at Art@Bainbridge. In her meticulous narrative paintings, Colomba liberates Black women from traditionally restrictive story lines to reclaim their autonomy—while addressing her own dual identity as a French citizen of Martinique descent. Learn more about the art on view from Laura M. Giles, the Art Museum’s Heather and Paul G. Haaga Jr., Class of 1970, Curator of Prints and Drawings, Janna Israel, Mellon Curator of Academic Engagement, and Annabelle Berghof ’23, McCrindle Intern.
