For the month of August, Southern Arts Movement transformed the streets of Downtown Graham into a unique art exhibit featuring Black Artists and Black stories. As the month comes to an end, Southern Arts Movement is hosting their Silent No Longer: Graham Edition Block Party to bring art, artists, and public together to celebrate their first exhibit.
The art that has been lining Graham streets will be displayed on the lawn of Alamance Arts this Saturday from 6pm to 8:30pm. People are invited to come experience the exhibit as a whole and meet some of the artists. Guests are requested to wear masks and practice physical distancing.
Artists include: Chuck Cunningham, Tre. Charles, Jasmine Best, Micayla Rose, Monique Cleveland (Sugah Acrylics), Shane Smith, Ten Tóz, Jerome Bias, Keidarrien Carr-Daye, Owen Parsons / SophYeti, and Aleesha Dickerson. The event will also include a live performance from Tre.Charles.
This exhibit wouldn’t be possible without the following sponsors/storefronts: Alamance Arts, Forgotten Road Ales, HiFi, Green & McClure, Graham Physical Therapy, The Muse, Volt, Fitzgerald & Faulkner, and Press.
We are thankful for warm reception from the Graham community, the amazing artwork, and the businesses and artists who have come together in this time of division to show that Black stories matter and are an important part of this community.
