Parallelograms Art Exhibition

Art is one of the most important forms that has the ability to connect people from all over the world. The stroke of a brush, the drag of a pencil or even the molding of clay has had the ability to bring together teens from all over Metro Atlanta for this exhibition.

The title of the exhibition is “Parallelograms,” which is a term commonly used in Mathematics. It means a figure with four parallel sides. The submissions for this gallery were open to the artist’s interpretation — and interpret it they did, in many different ways.

Some submissions included portraits draw in pencil or personified in paint. Others reflected the current injustices facing Americans, bringing to life the Black Lives Matter movement.

VOX thanks the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs for their generous support of this free art programming for teens in Atlanta!

The gallery has art pieces that may seem to fall all over the place, but if you take a deeper look into the artistry, we hope you’ll see that they indeed work together because they are the authentic voices of teenagers in our city. Their work is below.
