Carris Adams! Rocking Bad at Sports Center episode 3!

Found bio (from http://www.messagesinthestreet.com/carris-adams/):

Carris Adams' (B. 1987, Dallas, TX., lives Chicago) creates large scale drawings and paintings to address the signs and signifiers within a landscape that suggests difference, otherness and value. Believing that within the landscape are signs (literal, symbolic and semiotic) pointing to race, gender, systemic inequalities and resilience- Adams’s peripatetic practice allows for these images, objects and language to become source material for the studio. Recent exhibition include Trapped in Acapulco, Logan Center Exhibitions, The University of Chicago (2015), Lands End, Logan Art Center Exhibitions (2015), and “Re”, South Dallas Cultural Center, Dallas TX (2014). Adams received her BFA from The University of Texas at Austin and her MFA from University of Chicago, Chicago IL.
