Standing On The Mountain Top

Group Art Show from the AfroSolo Arts Festival
Event detail

This year the artists explore the meaning of Utopia.

The exhibit includes artwork by Charles Blackwell, Larry Byrd, Gene Dominique, Danielle Matthews, Aléxandra Nuñez, Thomas Robert Simpson, and Eustinove Smith.

Statement from curator Robert Melton:
Standing on the Mountaintop is a metaphorical journey to "utopia" seen through the works of the artists within the exhibition. The journey is about self-perseverance, determination, faith, struggles and obstacles thrown one's way reaching the mountain of "utopia." On the Mountain, dreams and aspirations become real and tangible. Many sensations are experienced and what one feels and sees cannot be described in words but through pure artistic expression from the liberated soul to embrace. The experience and reality resonates a new dawn for people of African Descent.
