Stephanie Brown: First Museum Exhibition


Do Not Bleach, work by Stephanie Brown (MFA 18) will show in its first museum exhibit at the Appleton Museum of Art.

Through a series of mixed media installations, Do Not Bleach expresses and encourages melanin love, whether one is dark-skinned, light-skinned, or somewhere in between. The show will also feature a selfie interactive where visitors are encouraged to try on one of her signature Do Not Bleach” t‑shirts and take a photo. Shirts will be available for purchase in the Appleton Store and are part of Brown’s public art campaign that allows people to advocate for their melanin.

Celebrate with artist Stephanie Brown at the opening of Do Not Bleach: Work by Stephanie Brown and Urban Chatter: Sharon Kerry-Harlan, with a reception from 5 – 6 p.m. At 6 p.m. in the auditorium, a spoken word showcase will feature performances on the topic of appearance. This free event is open to the public. Hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be provided.
