Thursday and Friday | 5 - 7 p.m.

Blood on Asphalt
Blood on Asphalt by Ziba Rajabi
Caged Bird and The Blue Room explores the Ziba Rajabi’s experience of physical and psychological spaces caused by displacement. In her paintings and drawings, she recreates moments inspired by her everyday observation of Arkansas natural scenery, as well as glitched images recalled from the memory that alludes to urban life and Iranian Architecture. At some point, these two distinct realms collide and create a whole new reality. Caged Bird and The Blue Room is a reflection of these collisions and an invitation to the new reality.
The exhibit will be open Thursday and Friday from 5 to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 12 to 5 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public. Due to COVID and limited capacity requirements, reservations are required.
