Queenies, Fades & Blunts: An Exhibition

A pop up exhibition by a collection of local artists of color will happen this Saturday preceding the recently featured Papi Juice party. MOJUICY (Mohammed Fayaz), QUILOMBO (Bryan Rodriguez), and KAREEM REID & KHALEB BROOKS will be the artists showing in the Queenies, Fades and Blunts exhbition. Fayaz is the artistic brain behind many of the Papi Juice flyers that show brown-skinned characters in cute outfits and various states of reverie. Check out the art at the “QTPOC beauty space” at Freeman Space this Saturday from 5 to 9pm then finish your night partying with the beautiful people over at Papi Juice. Visual art followed by djs and dancing sounds oh so stimulating.
