Offsite Gallery opening reception "Access and Extension" by Mensah Bey

Friday, July 8, 2022

Norfolk Arts is pleased to welcome Mensah Bey back to Norfolk, Virginia from San Diego, California for his solo exhibition at our Offsite Gallery. "Access and Extension", is a collection of artworks inspired by his Artist Residency in Havana, Cuba via Rooster Global News Network. "Access and Extension" references the constant tug of war Cuban citizens and visitors to Havana face with little access to tangible and intangible needs. Mensah created the 1st Norfolk Arts Asphalt Art project in 2020. "Gather In Abundance" is located in the Five Points Neighborhood in Norfolk, VA. The mural was recently featured in the Washington Post (June 2022). Read the article at the link. A native of Richmond, VA, Bey received his Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design from Hampton University and his Master of Fine Arts in Visual Studies from Norfolk State University.
