Join fellow Triangle area attorneys for an evening of art at the Nasher Museum. On Thursday, March 30th, we will enjoy a guided tour of Nina Chanel Abney: Royal Flush, the first solo exhibition in a museum for the Chicago-born artist.  Description of the artist's work from the Nasher's website: "Several of Abney’s early paintings directly confront interracial violence and now seem like eerily prescient harbingers in the wake of the recent deaths of African Americans and police in cities across the country. The titles and the imagery of these, along with more recent works that take on similar subjects, pose larger philosophical questions about the dynamics of power and responsibility, the ethics, agency and inherent bias of policing, methods of interrogation, and the politics of discriminatory practices. Often based on real events and filled with metaphor and allegory, Abney’s works take us on occasionally uncomfortable existential investigations of our own imperfect humanity." A little bit about Nina Chanel Abney: Nina Chanel Abney is an African American contemporary artist and painter who explores race, gender, and politics in her work. She was born in Harvey, Illinois.   She is best known for her colorful graphic large-scale paintings, four of which are included in the "30 Americans" exhibition of "works by many of the most important African-American artists of the last three decades", which has toured museums and galleries in America since 2008. Her work has also appeared the Whitney Museum, the Jack Shainman Gallery, as well as the Kravets Wehby Gallery in Chelsea.   FAQs   What are my parking options for getting to and from the event?
