CMU to hold artist talk with Taurus Burns
On Sept. 29 at 7 p.m., artist Taurus Burns will be holding an artist talk for his newest artwork in the Sarah and Daniel Opperman Auditorium in Park Library.
Burns's exhibit, "Self-Evident," offers "powerful introspections on race, identity, and society," according to Central Michigan University’s website.
Following the talk, there will be a reception immediately after being hosted in the Barber room gallery.
For those who cannot attend the event, Burns's artwork will be available for viewing until Oct. 6 in the Baber Room Gallery.
"Self-Evident" presents a series of black and white paintings presenting topics of racism and gun violence in America. Burns also takes inspiration from his personal life as some paintings depict his identity as a biracial human living in a divided world.
Burns graduated from Detroit’s Center for Creative Studies and has held a wide range of exhibits throughout the Detroit region.
