The exhibition, organized by Alex Jackson, Umar Rashid and Steven Zevitas, will be open from July 7th to August 25th, with an opening reception on Saturday, July 7th from 5-8PM.

Diverse in backgrounds, ethnicities, and perspectives, Cosmic Traffic Jam aims to unite painters and people of the community to create a conversation about the dividing state of our nation. Art can be seen as a catalyst for change, where we are able to think and understand things in a different light. This group of talented, young, artists offer paintings that allow us to alter our perceptions about the dangerous language and rhetoric we see in today’s society.
