Beka Butts

October 29 @ 7:00 pm

Beka Butts is an illustrator currently living in Greensboro, NC since her graduation from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2009.  She is a co-founder of the 512 Collective, an artist collective and gallery in High Point, NC that hopes to bring the growing art community in High Point together to create a culture of locally supported artists and makers. She has participated in several artistic festivals and showings including but not limited to: The First Friday Indie Market, High Point Hop Fest, E.A.S.T. Austin Studio Tour, Big Bang Bizarre in Orlando, FL, and Bring it Down Town “mARTket” in El Paso, TX, among others.

She will give a lecture where she discusses how both of her heritages (Mexican and the US South) have influenced her art.  She gives particular attention to her use of Mayan and Aztec imagery. In addition to speaking about her own art she will address her experiences as a female artist and the relationship between art and political activism (with an emphasis on the women of Ciudad Juarez). The event was scheduled to coincide with the Day of the Dead, a Mexican celebration of the dead through the creation of altars.
