Street Opera

Khalik Allah

Saturday August 15th, 6-9pm

Khalik Allah's Street Opera is a vivid and visceral portrayal of urban life and the human characters that inhabit it. Shooting at 125th and Lexington in Harlem, Allah's street photography gives a powerful glimpse into the spirit and character of those living in poverty.

Heron Arts is pleased to present this work in association with Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, as an opening reception for their afternoon screening of Allah's film work Field Niggas.

Jazz quartet Acme Anvil Drop will perform at Heron Arts during the opening.
