Perrion Hurd to be Featured in First Thea Art Department of the Year

Kicking off 2024, Thea Foundation is bringing back its Art Department series on Thursday, Feb. 1, featuring the work of Perrion Hurd.

Titled “Innocence Unveiled,” Hurd’s exhibit showcases his linocut prints that portray childhood’s “delicate dance between simplicity and complexity” in “an ode to the unfiltered joy, curiosity and boundless imagination that define the early years of life.”

Hurd is a printmaker, muralist and teaching artist who is best known for his signature strong lines, bold colors and geometric shapes.

“The geometric shapes and symbols that I often use around my figures are my interpretations of African design sources used to balance and connect each of my individual works to each other,” the Arkansas native told Soirée in 2022.

The opening reception begins at 5:30 p.m. and includes hors d’oeuvres and drinks. “Innocence Unveiled” will be on display through the month of February.
