Join us for a reception with the artist on Saturday, August 12, 5pm to 8pm!
CauseFlowers: Pride features giant felt dahlia sculptures designed to represent pride flags from the LGBTQ community. Artist Steph Hargrove has this to say about the exhibition, “I was inspired by recent legislation both in Florida and throughout the United States to create a bright and bold celebration of the queer community on gallery walls and beyond. Every Pride CauseFlower sold generates a donation to The Trevor Project, which advocates and provides support services for LGBTQ youth.”
