Join Wide Angle Youth Media for Black Butterfly at Maryland Institute College of Art's prestigious Falvey Hall. The evening will be a culmination of Wide Angle's exploration of the student-selected theme "Why Black Lives Matter". Over the 2017-2018 school year, youth across Baltimore created hundreds of photographs, videos, and design projects about the Black experience in the United States. Their final projects depict Black struggle and as well as Black joy, and reflect upon issues impacting individuals throughout the region.

The event will feature an exhibition photographs and design projects, premier new films, launch a Wide Angle curriculum, and include commentary from youth presenters as well as Delegate Mary Washington, District 43.

Proceeds from the event will support our free media education and youth development programs. We are honored to share this work, and hope you can join us as we commemorate youth voice and progress towards a more inclusive city, fueled by creativity.

Space is limited, tickets are required to attend. Price is price is pay-what-you-can to ensure the event is accessible to all community members, with a suggested donation of $35.
