Omari Booker

Fifteen is a solo exhibition by Omari Booker that speaks powerfully and directly to his story of incarceration, release and perseverance. In his own words: "Fifteen is about a 15-year sentence for a non-violent drug charge. And what it meant to be a human walking through, and coming out of, such a circumstance." Featuring a myriad of new paintings, this exhibit is a tale of human spirit triumphing over adversity through tenacity, determination, and interpersonal bonds.

This installation of Fifteen is an adaptation of its original debut at Elephant Gallery.
