The Lyndon House Arts Center (LHAC) and the Lyndon House Arts Foundation, Inc. (LHAF) are pleased to announce the opening of #NotASterotype, an exhibition guest curated by La Ruchala A. Murphy.  Murphy is the first recipient of the Guest BIPOC Curator program funded by LHAF.

La Ruchala Murphy designed and managed a regional art call requesting submissions by Black artists to be considered for this exhibition.  Artists from the Southern states entered their works to her curatorial concept in a variety of mediums.
