Art Beat

Pictures can be known to capture bits and pieces of history, other times it's meant to sybolize messages that're used to spread throughout the media. Some symbolic messages may be negative, but these messages give light to a more positive message. On today's Art Beat, we talk to astonished photographer, La Vonte Thompson, with his latest exhibit, Give Me My Flowers: Exhaulting Black Women and Girls. His exhibit featured shots of his models included with subjects which were discussed in an interview. Each photo representing art, beauty, and power. Join us now as we pull back the curtain and discuss the astounding art of La Vonte Thompson today on Art Beat.
