UPDATE: Due to the growing concerns regarding COVID-19, we have postponed the Unbound Roots opening reception. In lieu of an opening reception, we will be extending gallery hours on Thursday, March 12 from 12:00–9:00pm.
This decision comes with a heavy heart as we recognize the immense labor and love that was poured into the exhibition. We invite you to visit SOMArts during regular gallery hours throughout the exhibition run of Unbound Roots. Entry to our exhibition space is always free and all ages.
Curated by Alie Jones and Toshia Christal, Unbound Roots challenges the self-care industry by expanding discussions around Black wellness practices rooted in mental, spirituality and community care. Unbound Roots transcend through acceptance, pleasure, and liberation providing a safe space that encourages individual awareness, generational healing, and high vibratory engagements.
