OMA + BTGM 1st Thursdays: ONIJA

February 4 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Black Theatre Girl Magic (BTGM) in partnership with Orlando Museum of Art (OMArt) will be presenting the 1st Thursday Series in February! This gallery event will be available via live-stream on Facebook and YouTube from February 2-February 7, 2021.
The exhibit will aim to display portraiture art and poetry that centers around the meaning of “Onija”.
ONIJA: A Yoruban word meaning ‘fighter’. A person possessing great strength. For BTGM, this word closely ties to their mission of eliminating racist and ableist barriers of entry in all sectors of the entertainment industry. Drawn to the idea of displaying the possession of great strength, this series pushes to elevate the narrative of strength and fight from the African diaspora through the generations.
