We are thrilled to announce AOK’s first-ever online art show!  Please join us this Thursday, July 9 from 6 -7pm for the opening of Shaughn Cooper’s “6.20” – an exhibition consisting of images Shaughn shot at his first protest in Washington, DC on June 20, 2020.

“6.20” documents the raw emotion and power of that day:

“Shooting these protests felt like the first time in my life that I fought for something. Ever since I’ve felt fatigued, but I’ve also felt empowered— empowered to create a better tomorrow for my future kids, my nieces and nephews; empowered to help my fellow brothers and sisters help dismantle a racist system that our parents, grandparents and great grandparents also had to fight against. I feel like we may be close to the end of it ….. there’s still a lot of work that needs to be done though.”

There will be a Zoom tour of the show by Shaughn followed by a Q & A. If you would like to attend the opening on Thursday RSVP to carolyn@aokarts.org for the Zoom link.
