Fresh Arts says
Please join us for drinks and conversation at Boheme Cafe & Wine Bar on Thursday, July 9, when a portion of the proceeds from all drink sales during the 5-7 pm happy hour go to support "Ultimate Justice" by Stephen Wilson.

Meet the artist, enjoy a drink or two and take in Boheme's bohemian atmosphere! The proceeds from the evening will support the exhibition, so don't be shy, raise a glass (or three) while raising funds for a fantastic local artist!

About "Ultimate Justice":
Fresh Arts presents “Ultimate Justice,” a multimedia exhibition by Houston-based artist Stephen Wilson. “Ultimate Justice” is a series of photographs, drawings, notes, documents and videos based on the artist’s experience working on the feature length documentary Killing Time. The film delves deeply into the experience of a family, whose loved one, Elroy Chester, was executed by the State of Texas in 2013. Chester was diagnosed with a general learning disability by all scientific measures. In 2002, the U.S. Supreme Court barred the execution of mentally impaired persons, considering the punishment to be cruel and unusual. However, the State of Texas ruled that because Chester’s crimes demonstrated forethought, strategy and criminal intent, execution was fair punishment. The public is invited to a free opening reception beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday, July 17, 2015, at Fresh Arts, 2101 Winter Street, Studio B11, Houston, TX, 77007. Free parking is available.
