STORM is a 45-minute solo exhibition featuring the artwork of painter Sakana Walls, a current inmate at a Delaware correctional facility. The exhibition opens Feb. 19 and will be on display through Apr. 24 at The Sold Firm (800-B N. Tatnall St., Wilm.).
“We must conquer self-doubt in order to weather our own personal storm; then we’ll be able to learn, understand and respect one another,” reads an artistic statement by Walls, who will be present on video from the correctional facility as guests view the exhibit.
Walls, 49, was incarcerated in 2006 and began drawing in 2010 before taking up painting in 2016. He is a current member of the Delaware Prison Art Program and was a member of the Philadelphia Art Mural Program from 2018-20. Reservations are required to view STORM. Visit TheSoldFirm.com.
