A Fearful Time, A Hopeful Time: Collage Art by Christopher Luna at The Loo-vre, Niche Wine Bar June/July 2020

A Fearful Time A Hopeful Time

In June & July 2020, Niche Wine Bar’s Loo-vre presents A Fearful Time, A Hopeful Time: The Collage Art of Christopher Luna. These collages were created since we began staying home to stay safe from COVID-19. Many of them were created while listening to DJ Questlove’s livestreamed DJ sets.

Christopher’s debut full-length book of poetry, Message from the Vessel in a Dream, which also features some of his collage art, is available for sale as well.
