The Bull Meets The Bayou

The Bull Meets The Bayou

Featuring LEVEL Artist Collective

The Bull Meets the Bayou Exhibition Exchange features work by Level Artist Collective of New Orleans alongside local artists of Durham. The exhibition facilitates an exchange between the grassroots creative communities of the two cities, broadening their reach outside of their home bases and collectively strengthening their reputations as artists and visionaries. Collaborative installations, videos, sculptures, paintings, drawings, and a library of artist books, zines, and journals are on view May 3 – June 2 during regular gallery hours and for four special events.

This project is volunteer, artist organized and fiscally sponsored by Liberty Arts. Please consider making a donation to The Bull Meets the Bayou through our Fundly and website.

About LEVEL Artist Collective

Established in New Orleans in 2015, Level Artist Collective was founded by Ana Hernandez, Horton Humble, Rontherin Ratliff, John Isiah Walton and Carl Joe Williams. It is the result of an organic formation of painters, sculptors and writers whose different degrees of relations extend a multitude of connections. Through cohesion and the merging of creative resources, the objective of Level Artist Collective is to cultivate a platform that promotes, supports and sustains their collective voice and vision. The intention of their exhibitions are to not only function as a display of the artists’ but to present a collective of friends who predominantly grew up in the city of New Orleans to the ever expanding wold of contemporary art.
