Telfair Museums’ Jepson Center features a commissioned exhibition titled Grounded by Adolfo Alvarado. Alvarado is 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 explores 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.
