Closing Exhibit: 1.28 – Beyond Words – Nneka Jones, Christopher Clark, Detour

Closing Exhibition 1.28 7pm-11pm

“Beyond Words” portrays the unconditional love and beauty that exists in silence, with an understanding that silence also is not an option. An exhibit of pioneering artists inspiring change in their communities, and the global Art World.

Artists Detour (Denver, CO), Nneka Jones (Tampa, FL), Christopher “Cooli Ras” Clark (Jacksonville, FL) exhibit in this group show that displays a range of African diaspora. This exhibit walks the viewer through a journey of the human form where beauty exists beyond words, in a world in which underrepresented artists cannot remain silent. The exhibit examines the ways in which words are paired with the shared human experience to change a collective or individual perspective, based on how the truth of history is re-shaping social and cultural identity.

Beyond Words is not only about beauty in the human form, but also the beauty in the way that language can expand perspective.

Beyond Words is part of a multi-location event taking place called “Bloom on Franklin” Hillsborough County’s monthly Art and Entertainment Walk in the Tampa Historic Arts District, along the North Franklin Business Corridor nicknamed “Yellow Brick Row.”

Masks are highly encouraged in the gallery or any indoor spaces.
