Harmony, an exhibition featuring watercolor paintings, repurposed fashion, album cover art illustrations, opens . The exhibit spotlights work produced by local teens through ART 180 programs fostering creative expression.
Teens were inspired to create intricate watercolor mobiles following conversations about color theory, led by artists Angel Graves and Marie Sicola. The mobiles represent the culturally perceived meanings of colors and explores how colors can be used to evoke emotions.
The exhibition also features constructed repurposed fashions made from found and recycled materials in a project led by Mica Whitney and Bo Hundley. The hand sewn pieces are a reflection of the designers' internal feelings and self-identity.
Aspiring DJs explored the similarities and differences of analog and digital DJing, with guidance from local DJs Alex Cortes and Zavi Harman. Teens were given the opportunity to record their own tracks and design their own cover art.
ART 180 will host an opening reception for the exhibition on , from 6-9 p.m. during RVA First Fridays. The reception is family friendly, open to the public and features an all-ages activity. During the event, participants in the DJ program will perform their original music at
The show will remain on display at Atlas, ART 180's art center for teens, through August 25. Atlas is located at 114 W. Marshall St. in Jackson Ward and is open through and by appointment.
