Lakita Costner has been selected by a curator of Houston Museum of African American Culture to participate in the exhibition in Houston, Texas. Lakita’s work together with the works of seven other artists was chosen from a highly competitive lineup of Houston artists.“Over There Some Place” a group tribute to the discourse of the legendary creative artist Bert Long Jr. After researching his work and having the honor to help curate his last show at Houston Baptist University. I wanted to contribute to the show my fascination with the juxtaposition of art elements and details. I was inspired by his harmony of his perseverance of life. He just wanted to create and he didn’t fear rejection. His work demanded engagement and I achieved this by the layering and complexities of lines. He was free and his artwork reflected that achievement. I personally was able to accomplish this reflection of freedom by allowing myself to be vulnerable through my artwork. “Over there Some Place will take place in the Houston Museum of African American Culture at 4807 Caroline Street Houston, Texas from February 3rd through April 14, 2018. An opening reception will be held on February 3rd at 6:30-8:30pm. Further details can be found on Lakita’s official website at www.LakitaCostner.com Or www.hmaac.org
