LaTonia Allen: Falling to Find: A Journey to Love Attained

Houston Museum of African American Culture

July 21 - September 22, 2018

"Falling to Find: A Journey to Love Attained tells the story of a time where artist LaTonia Allen found herself being overwhelmed with emotions of depression, isolation and insecurity. Each piece is paired with a song to directly convey the different emotions felt in these moments of vulnerability. Through these works, she credits these songs to not only allowing her to accept being in these spaces but more importantly, aid her in navigating through them. Follow along in this symphonic journey as she tells of how she found a new disposition of self-fulfillment and confidence through art and music."
