About The Event
Project Onward presents the unique illustrations of artist Anthony “Bright” Davis. Over the years, Tony has developed a body of pseudo-biographical work that contains both fascinating and controversial narrative. The portrayal of pimps, hustlers, prostitutes and other unseen residents of West Side neighborhoods are rare in the art world, but his graphic-novel style and openness offers emotional distance and space from judgment; which allows viewers who aren’t from his society to think and talk about these topics in less-guarded dialogue. As the artist explains, “I want people to see the truth, the nitty-gritty. The true street life.” Join us after the summit for the After Party. * Beer, Wine, and Bellini will be served
