WILLIS “BING” DAVIS: Kneel Opening Reception

November 5, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Co presents a new commissioned body of work by Dayton’s most prolific artist, activist and elder statesman, Willis “Bing” Davis. Featuring a room-sized installation that explores police brutality through “kneelers” created with reclaimed wood sculptures. In the tradition of African Folk Art prayer, the kneelers metaphorically connect Colin Kaepernicks’s kneeling protests and the fatal action in the murder of George Floyd.
Opening Reception: Friday, November 5, 2021
Members’ Preview: 5-6 p.m.
Public Reception: 6-9 p.m
