Event Description

Missouri State University Department of Art+Design’s Brick City Gallery presents “The Road I Call Home: Portraits and Films by Randy Bacon; Stories by Our Homeless Friends” March 19-April 20. Exhibition and related activities are free and open to the public. MSU alum and award-winning artist Randy Bacon has been a professional photographer since 1984, and maintains a commercial studio in downtown Springfield. Bacon is also co-founder and artist of the nonprofit, people-empowering movement 7 Billion Ones. As his work has evolved over three decades, Randy has become increasingly interested in using his art to pursue long-term projects exploring significant social concerns and issues. “The Road I Call Home” is a series of simple, direct and casual studio portraits of homeless individuals emphasizing the beauty, identity and integrity of each person. Alongside each portrait is a panel outlining the individual circumstances of each subject in his or her own words. (A public reception for the exhibit will be held during the April 1st Friday Art Walk on April 6 from 6 to 9pm.)
