Live artist talk with Valentino Dixon
June 1 | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Don’t miss this special opportunity to participate in a live artist talk with Valentino Dixon. Dixon is a Buffalo based artist, exoneree and criminal justice reform advocate. Arrested for a murder he didn’t commit and exonerated after 27 years behind bars, Dixon’s passion for art sustained him. During his many years in prison, Valentino created hundreds of intricate images: landscapes, portraits, still life pieces and scenes based on legendary golf courses.
In the time following his release, Dixon has traveled extensively to share his story and advocate for sentencing reform and other criminal justice reforms. Dixon’s work has exhibited at the Drawing Center in WNY and Burchfield Penney Art Center
Mr. Dixon will be available for Q&A after his presentation.
