There is parking at the Winn-Dixie parking lot next door, and the gallery is wheelchair accessible. All are invited and welcome to join this celebration of Black Art and Artists living and working in our community.
“Black Artists have been historically and continue to be under-represented in our community exhibition spaces. Our intention is to make space for Black Artists and their voices through this exhibition. Our goal is to make and strengthen communal connections and to give recognition and exposure to more Black Artists. Our vision is to shape new futures. “ – ACCRP & GFAA

Are you a social justice advocate?
Temple Shir Shalom is forming a group of social justice advocates to work on an authorized RAC Fl (Reliious Action Center, Florida) campaign to oppose HB 1 /SB 484. This bill is being referred to as the Anti Riot Bill. Its intent is to keep people from peacefully protesting, by threatening that such activities might result in unfair and extreme consequences to participants. If you are interested in joining us, and attending a Call to Action on Zoom, organized by RAC FL, on March 9th at 7 pm, please contact Adele Beckerman (954-675-3723) or Marcia Storch (715-378-5238).
