Black Greatness Rises during Northwood Artwalk

"A people may become great through many means, but there is only one measure by which its greatness is recognized and acknowledged. The final measure of the greatness of all peoples is the amount and standard of the literature and art they have produced.... No people that has produced great literature and art has ever been looked upon by the world as distinctly inferior." - James Weldon Johnson

 In a day and age where we bare witness countless times to the struggle of being black in America. It  is of extreme importance that the arts celebrate who we are So Exhibit Treal returns with "Rising Black Greatness". An exhibition of all that is Black Excellence.

Hosted by Empress Prestige
Music by DJ OG


"Art is meant to capture time, memories, views and so much. Without seeing
ourselves in that it's like we cease to exist... Like we have nothing to hold onto. You can look at a piece of art and feel every raw emotion in it but when it's someone who looks like you it becomes so much more.

I know that growing up I didn't see as much black art because I was never exposed to it. Once I started seeing myself in art I started to really capture what my beauty is and just how MAGICAL we are." - Ashley Dias

"Why is it important for us to see art that is representative of ourselves? Because it’s more important on how I view myself other than what the world says about me. And through this will inspire others to view themselves that way. God and I know me best…. So each stroke gives off a certain energy to my piece that no one else can generate. I’ll die if I eat all the lies that they say." - Tracy Guiteau 

"Growing up in Today's society. Black excellence is an oxy moron. Our culture has influenced the world with little to no recognition. However, our people have not let society determine how great we will be. We have taken a world that removed the welcome mat and we decided to avoid doors because we aim for the skies. doors in my eyes are obstacles. Black excellence is the standard for beauty, music, fashion, food and of course art! As an black artist I am influenced immensely by my culture. Our body is nothing short of the glory of God and I enjoy showing others how beautiful we are as a people with my perspective of light, color and line. So, I am black excellence and my art is a reflection of such." - Orealjinal Desijns

"Art expression, something internal that's externalized that can offer something different to everyone that encounters it. Leaving a sense of empowerment to the artist, and the ability to build up any one it touches." - Visualist
 "Art is the one thing that unequivocally shows your individuality while simultaneously unifying you; to this human experience. It means you have created something from nothing and left your mark on the world. A moment captured is a moment encapsulated; I live to freeze time. Art can be created but it cannot be destroyed. That piece of you that you pour into your work is immortal. So to me it’s important to tell my story though pictures because I want to live forever" - KYTA BEEZ MEDIA
"I always felt like I wanted to represent black people in a positive light going to school in Boston for college, but I only saw white models on the wall. I never saw black models or black paintings. I always wanted to create change, so I started to paint black figures in different shades of black" - Dariel Donovan

If you've traveled the bustling streets of Miami's Wynwood you have no doubt witness the name Moal Thepeople'sartist stenciled along the sidewalks with messages or stickers plastered everywhere. Every bit as ubiquitous as this artist is anonymous, South Florida's very own Banksy never fails to deliver artwork that moves pass it mediums and sends countless of profound thoughts racing. We're honored to have this legendary artist exhibiting with us and can't wait to see what's created!

"They say what it do/ But never do what it do/ Words, promises and relationships, sometimes I fell through/ RIP to the stew/ I'm writing lines for the juice/ I'm a do what I do, when I don't know what to do"- Maverick

Maverick is an artist and performer based out of Palm Beach, Florida.The inspiration for his unique blend of sound comes from many different shades of hip-hop and R&B, from the warmth of the old school to the punch of the current era. His music echoes the work of influential talents such as Lil Wayne, T Pain or Eminem, just to mention a few. The strength of Maverick's vision is the way the energy of the sound combines with the thought-provoking lyrical flow, bridging the gaps between great melodies and thought-provoking songwriting. Find out more and let the music do the rest of the talking.
