Welcome to Wakanda Event
"With the excitement about AfroFuturism surrounding the cinematic premiere of the Marvel superhero film, Black Panther, the Gateway Media Arts Lab wanted to recreate the Wakanda experience while providing a unique platform for the Gateway artists to showcase their work,” said Michelle Darden Lee, Programs Director of the Media Arts Lab.
Attendees will first attend a screening of Black Panther at the Regal Hyattsville Royal Theater, then GMAL will host an after party with a “Welcome To Wakanda” themed digital media, art, fashion, music and more. “Gateway CDC seeks to create opportunities for resident artists to be innovative through their art,” said Pat Thornton, Interim Executive Director.
BOSTWORKS created the events promotional materials including custom social media headers as well as a custom visual window installation compiled of over 100 tiled pieces of paper.
