The Hidden in Plain Sight exhibition and performance program is part of a collaboration with the Bronzeville Arts Ensemble and Theatre LILA that includes the premiere of “The Mojo and the Sayso,” a play by Aishah Rahman about how a family deals with the tragedy of a young son killed by a police officer. The play runs in the Stiemke Studio from January 27 through January 31. Information about times and tickets is available at www.bronzevilleartensemble.com or www.theatrelila.com.
Hidden in Plain Sight, which runs through January 31, is open for viewing one hour before each play performance, or by contacting Kelly Parks Snider at 608-576-2847 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
