Join Sunset Art Studios Fall Artist in Residence, Stacie Monday, for a night of positive affirmations. Visitors are invited to take pictures with signs of positivity. Statements will include “I am not an Angry Black Woman”, ” My femininity will not be defined by racism”, and “I am worthy”. Community members are invited to participate in Monday’s practice through the photobooth and a collection of flower crowns she constructs.
