“Sacred Reflections” celebrates the one year anniversary of Cultivate 7Twelve. For this exhibition, we asked artists to take time to reflect on the year that is passing and dream of the year to come. Exhibiting artists were to consider the larger context of the advent and celebrate the purpose of being, or simply meditate the beauty in the every day. Centered around the advent, works of art reflect a season of expectancy, reflection, and preparation.
Writing on the Wall
Sept. 7 - Nov. 12
“Writing on the Wall” highlighted the intent and significance of graffiti, street art and other word-based art in a fine art setting. The exhibition, centered around Banksy’s “Haight Street Rat,” allowed viewers to ask the questions, “What power does writing on the wall hold in our daily lives? How does it challenge or inspire us? How do words define our significance?” To explore the spectrum of textual art, we are placing wordbased craft next to edgy street art, prompting viewers to consider the cultural influence of writing on the wall.
Oct. 5 - Oct. 29
UnBound Art was curated in partnership with UnBound Waco, to bring awareness to the issues of sex and human trafficking.
