Sonié Joi Thompson – Ruffin

SONIÉ JOI THOMPSON-RUFFIN

Sonié Joi Thompson-Ruffin has dedicated her life’s work as an artist sharing the experiences of the African American community, this exhibition is no different. As we embark upon 400 Years, a testimony to slavery, unwritten checks, non-promissory notes to a people in a country that has difficulty accepting the reality of its history, we explore the complexities of slavery, freedom, and the Revival of Healing that rests at the core of this nation’s validity within the American narrative.

About Carter Art Center

In March 2003, MCC-Penn Valley dedicated the Anna & Kemper Carter Center for Visual Arts and Imaging Technology. This beautiful structure provides classrooms, computer labs and fine arts studios with natural light. The gallery features exhibits that educate, challenge and inspire. Anna's Room is a wonderful place to relax. Outside, a stainless steel sculpture by Rita Blitt, "Black Box VII: Aspects of Nature II," is permanently installed. The Carter Art Center provides quality arts education to students in midtown Kansas City, preparing them to transfer to baccalaureate institutions. It provides employers

with workers who are well-prepared for jobs such as graphic designers and digital prepress technicians. It also provides a place for the community to gather to celebrate and enjoy the visual arts. Operational costs for the Carter Art Center are greater than those of a traditional community college art department. We are seeking support from the community we serve so the Center can provide the highest quality art programming for students and the community. To help accomplish this the Friends of the Carter Art Center will provide financial and community support so the college can continue to offer quality art exhibits, scholarships, and growth opportunities for arts education.
