Exposed Elements, a pop up art collaborative, a Barbaro-Gould Foundation project, will hold a public art show on September 26-27th in Downtown Clearwater’s Cleveland Street District. Exposed elements utilizes vacant commercial real estate to hold free public art shows. This effort not only provides selected artists with a free venue to exhibit their work, but also helps with the revitalization of economically challenged areas by beautifying vacant space and showcasing it to potential tenants as they enjoy the art.
The exhibit will offer various visual arts by distinguished fine local artists, as well as local live music, raffles, and refreshments. All proceeds to benefit The Barbaro-Gould Foundation & Clearwater Arts Alliance.
Friday, September 26th 5PM to 10PM
Saturday September 27th 10AM to 10PM
