Madison Public Library's Bubbler Making Justice Fauhaus teen art exhibition URBAN BUBBLE

"Living in and on the URBAN BUBBLE is precarious at best. Being young, gifted and black does not equate with being understood and encouraged by the systems that be. Moving through the turmoil we, as artists, seek to define ourselves and project our realities into the future, owning our narratives and images."

The Bubbler, in collaboration with Faisal Abdu’Allah and MMSD’s Foundations Central graduation recovery program located at the Urban League of Greater Madison, presents an art exhibition by Madison youth. Over a 9-week course held in the Bubbler Room at Central Library, URBAN BUBBLE is the culmination of conversations and productions that celebrated identity, excellence and the powers within each individual.

“I took all of my favorite things that make me feel happy, and created my special place. I love thunderstorms, the full moon, Sci-Fi, and colorful things. This image represents my inner and outer self.”

"There have been times where I have felt cracks in my life. My mind is on fire trying to come to a conclusion. It’s like my mind is a puzzle rearranging everyday, trying to silence itself. But in the end, it saves me."

“I don’t think about it, I just do it…it’s like makeup, working with colors, blending and shading. I am able to create me, I am in control of my own image.”
