Check out this Bi-lingual Art Exhibit

In a world with a global economy, having two languages is better than having one. That's one message of "Bi-Lingual," a new exhibition at Spaces gallery focusing on works by 11 black and Latino artists from across the United States who explore the idea of having a dual identity.

Organized by Angelica Pozo, a Cleveland ceramic artist who describes herself in the show's catalog essay as "a Caribbean Latina with African roots," the exhibition is energetic and engaging, despite the presence of several installations that lack focus and concision.

The strongest works confront the viewer sharply and immediately with the challenges of straddling two cultures and translating ideas and experiences from one to another.
