|Evolve the Gallery loans Ali: The Greatest Collection to Muhammad Ali Center in Louisville|
This special loan is part of an on-going effort by Evolve the Gallery to showcase the many facets of Muhammad Alis life and his connection to people of all racial, political and economic backgrounds through visual art.
SACRAMENTO, CA.- A remarkable collection of 22 works by 19 artists from Evolve the Gallerys Ali: The Greatest collection will be on loan to the Muhammad Ali Center (MAC) in Louisville, Kentucky. The highly anticipated exhibition will open with a private reception on Alis birthday, Thursday, January 17, 3013 and run through March 30, 2013.
Ali: The Greatest debuted at Evolve the Gallery in January of 2012 and was heavily attended and viewed. The selected works comprised in the collection were chosen for their aesthetic power in conveying the intense emotions conjured by the image of Muhammad Ali. The exhibit includes works in various mediums by prominent artists like David P. Flores, Frank Robinson, Charly Palmer, DL Warfield, Joe Iurato, James Gayles and features local artists: Gerry GOS Simpson, Lisa Alonzo, and Kinzie Davis. Works by Jason Robichau and Joseph Adolphe were recently added to the collection.
This special loan is part of an on-going effort by Evolve the Gallery to showcase the many facets of Muhammad Alis life and his connection to people of all racial, political and economic backgrounds through visual art. Evolve the Gallery owners Brady and A.Michelle Blakeley have been working closely with MAC for the past year to bring this exciting opportunity to fruition. The exhibition at MAC is accompanied by a VIP reception and gallery talk.
We feel particularly fortunate for this opportunity. Weve spent the past year reaching out to various venues across the country with the intention of sharing not only the spirit and historic importance of Muhammad Alis accomplishments, but how prolific his life is. Opening at the Muhammad Ali Center on his birthday is just the beginning, states A.Michelle Blakeley.
