The Art of Purvis Young

It is in spaces of seeing–in places like the museum, [the canvas] whose intention is to provide access to imagine landscapes, that we can find presence and explore what it means to visible. There is something meaningful about having a presence; being visible …It validates one’s ability to see the beautiful in oneself. The transformative power of art and what happens around it are what creates the possibility of harmony and new opportunities form. This is the Art from Overtown!
