You don’t want this show to hang on your walls, you need for this show to hang on your walls...

In a time of outrage 17 African American artists unite in honor of the seventeen years of life of Trayvon Martin while mourning the fact that he was only allowed to live seventeen years of life. Different mediums, different styles, different perspectives, different visions all with one mission to visually convey our love and support for one another, our people, but especially the life paths..., struggles, pains, love, success, hardships, failures and triumphs of the Young Black male. In order to revolutionize the world view of the Black male there must be a revolt… and the Revolution will be Visualized.

The art work is born to depict the young Black male 17 and below and all of his daily trials and tribulations visually. Although the show is inspired by Trayvon Martin its goal is to mainly represents all of those other kids who also have not survived to live and thrive past the age of 17.
