The Yung Mulatto Project: the selected works of the artist Miles Saal features the first solo exhibit of the Pittsburgh based Black artist, Miles Saal, known as Yung Mulatto (1996-2017). Originally from Bronx, NY, he spent informative early years in Jacksonville, FL. Miles’ figurative works of mostly ink to paper, recorded the culture of the creative network of people in his community with the strong influence of old school animation, Hip-Hop and head shop posters with raw tenderness and vulnerability. Miles death in 2017, due to depression did not end his legacy or collaborative spirit. This special exhibit continues to support his Pittsburgh artistic community while also promoting mental health awareness.
Curated by Felicia Snead, Co-founder/director of Atypical Arts, organized by Kilolo Luckett, Curator of Visual Arts for The August Wilson African American Cultural Center.
