The exhibition will be taking place from February 1- February 28, 2014. Selected works will be featured in businesses on Myrtle Avenue in the Fort Greene/Clinton Hill section of Brooklyn.

The working title for the month is Native Sons and Daughters: Locals, (im)Migrants, Expats and Prodigals.

Taking inspiration from the migratory histories of African Americans in the United States, MARP is seeking works that address issues, explorations, reflections and discoveries centered around notions of being born of a place, becoming connected/ attached to a new place or upon leaving a place adjusting perceptions and attachments to that place.
