Sweet Virtual Vibes is BACK!
Get ready to move and groove while keeping your social distance.
Jacob Lawrence Gallery, Northwest Film Forum, and On the Boards co-present this edition of Sweet Virtual Vibes, an extension of each organization’s ongoing collaboration with SassyBlack in support of her as an artist, musician, and creative thinker.
This Sweet Virtual Vibes will include a screening of Ilana Harris-Babou’s LONG CON, which invites viewers to explore their associations with and assumptions about the wellness industry through a collage of clips of well-known fortune-tellers and health gurus, such as the Honduran healer Alfredo Darrington Bowman, aka Dr. Sebi, and Youree Dell Harris, aka Psychic Readers Network spokeswoman Miss Cleo.
