Give Us the Sun: A Solo Exhibition of Artwork by Traci Mims

When

June through August

Where

The Woodson African American Museum of Florida

Admission

Free

What

Give Us the Sun, is a solo exhibition of artwork by artist Traci Mims. On view starting June 8, the exhibition features drawings, prints, paintings, and quilt work by the Atlanta-based artist.
A native of St. Petersburg, Mims returns to the city with Give Us the Sun having earned her BA from Florida A&M University, her MFA from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, and numerous awards, fellowships, and exhibitions.

Mims is a multidisciplinary artist whose work often spotlights the narratives, lives, faces, and figures of the individuals in her community as well as epic individuals and stories. “I consider myself a social realist,” she says, “because I focus on the lives of everyday Black people, the things they experience, and how they react to it emotionally.”

Her meticulous print work and monumental drawings center social justice and illuminate histories that are increasingly under threat of erasure. Mims combines the everyday and monumental, both in subject matter and style, making each piece its own poignant expression.
