Artist Jeff Huntington returns to RiverArts on Thursday, February 23 as part of the Creative Lives Series. His show Catalyst is currently on exhibit through the month of February at the RiverArts studio gallery, as well as the Harriet Tubman mural he created at RiverArts in collaboration with youth from the J DeWeese Carter Center and the Bayside HOYAS.
Huntington’s work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally over the past 25 years; his paintings are in private and public collections throughout the world, including US embassies. In addition to his solo career, Huntington has formed a non-profit, Future History Now, with his partner, Julie Gibb. Future History Now creates public artworks and art programming through the collaboration of at-risk youth and local, professional artists—creating opportunities for all involved to become stakeholders in creating the future landscape of their own communities.
The Harriet Tubman mural currently on exhibit at RiverArts is the result of Future History Now’s collaboration with Kent County youth. RiverArts is in the process of finding a home for the mural once the exhibit has concluded.
The public is encouraged to come and listen as Huntington shares his passions and philosophies with us, and view the mural as well as Huntington’s solo work.
