EXHIBITIONS

Reflections of Time II

January 8 – February 29, 2024

This exhibition explores African American artists from Winter Garden and surrounding areas, and demonstrates how their works serve as a testament in preserving time.  This collective body of work preserves a small portion of the continuous American struggle, which is an African American struggle that needs to be told, so that the importance can be felt year-round. This exhibit displays artwork of different disciplines, unified under one brushstroke that shares one common denominator- Black excellence. Curated by Patrick Noze, Crealde’s Senior Curator of Exhibitions.
