#art912: Grounded

Jepson Center March 30–August 19

Adolfo Alvarado's #art912 exhibition at Telfair Museums' Jepson CenterTelfair Museums will feature a commissioned work titled Grounded by Adolfo Alvarado, a Savannah-based artist whose work incorporates calligraphic text, expansive swirls, and multiple layers of paint to create complex compositions that reference both medieval illuminated texts and graffiti culture.

Grounded will explore a resident alien’s journey through past and present experiences, influenced by Alvarado’s upbringing in Mexico’s Ciudad Juaréz, a city whose vibrant culture and notorious violence continue to impact his work.

This exhibition is organized by Telfair Museums and curated by Erin Dunn, Assistant Curator.
