PORTRAITS OF MY PEOPLE : THE GOD SUITE
WILLIE MIDDLEBROOK INSTALLATION OF MIXED MEDIA WORKS
AT LUCKMAN FINE ARTS GALLERY

Portraits Of My People: The God Suite, an innovative installation of mixed media works by contemporary artist Willie Robert Middlebrook, Jr. will be displayed through March 30, 1996 at the Luckman Fine Arts Gallery. It is located at Cal State L.A.'s Luckman Fine Arts Complex and is free to the public. Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday and Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. and one hour prior to each theatre performance.

"The God Suite" is a new body of work which evolved from "The Portraits of My People" series. The works pay tribute to Middlebrook's father and mother who taught their children that God may be found in all of us. The text (poetry) attached to the work connects the viewer with the artist. This connection helps to translate and define the true meaning of "God Suite."

Middlebrook is photography instructor and director of the Children's Gallery at the Junior Arts Center at Barnsdal Park, a professor in photography and a member of the Board of Directors of the Angeles Gate Cultural Center. He has participated in more than 175 solo and group exhibitions.

The exhibition is curated by Dr. Patricia Woodlin, gallery director.
