The Crisp-Ellert Art Museum, on the campus of Flagler College at 48 Sevilla Street, presents CEAM Artist Residency alumna Erin Kendrick's exhibition entitled, "The Hotelmen." It will be displayed on November 4, 2022 through December 2, 2022 between 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., with a walkthrough followed by a reception on November 4, 2022, between 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Erin Kendrick creates paintings and installations representing black girls and women through a fresh perspective. Rather than silenced with a subtle undertone of victimization, which she believes has been historically portrayed through artwork, social media and other media outlets, Kendrick creates a vision where empowered females of color have feelings and voices that deserve recognition.
In her recent exhibit, Kendrick displays the connections she has found between the Negro Baseball League's Cuban Giants, a St. Augustine team from the late 1920's, and the staff at the Hotel Ponce de Leon, which is now the centerpiece of Flagler College.
Included in solo as well as group exhibitions, Kendrick's work has been displayed at establishments all over Jacksonville including; Yellow House and the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens, as well as Florida State College, and the Ritz Theater and Museum.
She has also been featured in the New Orleans African American Museum as well as the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Museum in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
