Summer Brooks is a multimedia sculptor expressing the beauty of Black women. She will be creating an exhibition at KCAC centering around the importance of hair and beauty in the Black community. Beauty standards have been set by western ideals that value lighter skin and thinner noses. By creating Black figures basking in their love for themselves, Summer hopes to instill positivity where those harmful values has caused trauma. Funding will assist in material research for pieces creating for the exhibition and studio space rental.
