Misty Sol is back this spring with a new, hour-long gallery experience, Dynamize The Figure. Sol uses a series of physical and conceptual games to reflect on the the body and the power dynamic between the observer and the observed, while deepening our understanding of the ideas presented in the artworks in Determined To Be: The Sculpture of John Rhoden.  

Misty Sol's interdisciplinary practice is like a sepia toned family photo album in technicolor. Misty explores Black people’s connections to nature, wellness, and speculation. Her figurative painting and portraits, stories, and eco practice are heavily influenced by the common histories, everyday stories and culture of Black people. 

Misty Sol currently serves as the director of Tiny Farm Wagon, a project dedicated to public art and wellness. Her work has been exhibited at the Wolfhound Studio in the Zhou B. Art Gallery in Chicago, Burlington College, Headlong Theatre, The Moore College of Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Vox Populi, Bartram's Gardens, the Philadelphia Airport, and Widener University. In 2021, her paintings made their international debut on the set of the NBC sitcom Grand Crew now streaming on HULU. And in 2022 her work appeared on the Oprah Network show, "All Rise", now streaming on Amazon. Her work is currently on display at the Colored Girls Museum in Philadelphia.  

Class size: 20 people. Museum admission is included in the cost of registration.
