The work of Denver –based artist Juliette Hemingway, is on display at the Bruce R. Watkins Cultural Heritage Center thru. Nov. 2.
Hemingway’s work has a theme of music, but there’s also the blue people who are ever present in her work. The blue people represent the acknowledgment of Autism as part of her life. Javari, her only child, is autistic and it has had an enormous impact on their lives. So therefore, it is the same in her art.
The exhibit is called “Visual Dialogues.” As Hemingway says, “The marks are me taking my life, growth and expansion and making it visible. Yu are experiencing the visual dialogue of a life revolving around healing, autism, and awareness I want you to see it and feel it.”
The Watkins Cultural Heritage Center is located at 16300 Blue Parkway, Kansas City, MO. Hours are 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Tuesday – Saturday. Admission is free.
