TEMPORARILY CLOSED - Flood Lines by Tasha Lewis

TEMPORARILY CLOSED - Flood Lines by Tasha Lewis

Statement from Centennial Park Conservancy:
For the safety of our community, staff, and Metro Parks colleagues all Metro Parks facilities in Centennial Park, including the Parthenon, Centennial Performing Arts Center, and the Centennial Arts Center, will be closed until April 6. We are committed to doing our part to flatten the curve of COVID-19 in this evolving crisis. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to see you soon! 

 

The Parthenon and Centennial Park Conservancy are proud to present Flood Lines by Tasha Lewis in the East Gallery of the Parthenon from Friday, January 24 through Sunday, May 10, 2020.

Artist Tasha Lewis borrows from ancient artifacts to evoke contemporary narratives about women. In Flood Lines she updates classical forms such as vessels and figures featuring hand embroidered beads, wire, and hand dyed fabric. Over 35 sculptures of exquisite craftsmanship are carefully arranged within the gallery to create an immersive space that is both formal and organic. 

Flood Lines coincides with the 100th anniversary of the 19th US Constitutional amendment giving women the right to vote. As Tennessee suffragists were instrumental to the ratification of this law, Lewis sees Flood Lines as an homage to these women.
