Visual art: New Perspectives



In NEW PERSPECTIVES, Ernesto Cuevas and Cullen Washington Jr. serve up a double dose of politically charged painting and mixed-media work at the Rialto Center for the Arts, continuing Mon., JUNE 9. Cuevas continues to mine the history of his family of migrant farm workers, while Washington calls to account evolving categories of race, gender and class in his Hoodlores Series. Cuevas' community mural work with Red Cielo has been taking him around the country, and Washington recently won first place at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry's Black Creative Exhibition. Through July 11. Free. Mon.-Fri., 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m., and by appointment. 80 Forsyth St. 404-413-9820.
