2023Convergence: Crack in the Glass Ceiling
This exhibition represents the pushing of boundaries into spaces that cultivate growth and coordinated expansion. Breaking barriers helps us to grow and mature in our thought processes regarding culture, community, and experiences. Operating out of purpose and passion releases us from the confines of our comfort zones and allows viewers to experience a (proverbial) cracking of the glass ceiling. This unique group of artists create vibrant contemporary pieces that include traditional elements of art while blurring the lines between street and contemporary works.
This exhibition is co-created with MUSE GR
, curated by Stephen and Taylor Smith. Stephen and Taylor Smith are the owners of Muse GR, an interactive art gallery and event space on the Westside of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Through Muse, Stephen and Taylor connect with the community using art and creativity to encourage positive transformation and discovery of one’s purpose and passion.
