Join the BALTI GURLS for an intimate screening of the Chicago-based webseries Brown Girls, written by Fatimah Asghar and directed/produced by Sam Bailey. Brown Girls tells the intimate story of two young women of color: Leila, a South Asian-American writer just now owning her queerness, and Patricia, a sex-positive Black-American musician who is struggling to commit to anything: job, art, and relationships. While the two women come from completely different backgrounds, their friendship is ultimately what they lean on to get through the messiness of their mid-twenties. The screening will be followed by a 30 minute web Q+A with the series director Sam Bailey. Please note Brown Girls contains adult content.

Open Hours is a monthly program hosted at the BMA. The public is invited to propose events, workshops, lectures, and experiences to take place in the Joseph Education Center. Open Hours events are about creating community together through conversations, exchange and learning. All Open Hours are free and open to the public.
