Steven Montinar BFA ’21 and Shori Sims BFA ’22 Exhibit in “Roots Run Deep”

Posted on February 5, 2021

Students Steven Montinar and Shori Sims are part of the exhibition “Roots Run Deep: A Survey of Contemporary Black Hair Culture” at the Brew House Association, on view January 22 through March 6.

Featuring the work of 16 Black artists, stylists, and cultural producers, Roots Run Deep looks at the ways in which Black hairstyles are tied to tradition and examines the historic influence of the past on modern styling practices today. Through photography, sculpture, and mixed media works, artists demonstrate how hair is used as a medium to articulate our creativity across the diaspora. The exhibition is curated by Tara Fay.
