SIXTH STREET GALLERY: 2000 East 6th Street, Austin, TX 78702

Some say the America of today is unexpected, surprising, and unforeseen; while other say they saw it coming long ago.  Either way, the American of today is full of complexity, confrontation, contrasting opinions, and conflicting motivations.  Many of us crave a deeper understanding to guide us through these times of uncertainty.

In an effort to facilitate conversation and reflection on where American is today and where we are headed, Sixth Street Gallery has partnered with Artists 916 to present Unforeseen.  This exhibit includes both 2D and 3D works in a diverse range of styles and mediums, all exploring this theme.  Artists 916 is a collective of artists in Austin Texas with a mission to increase the relevance of art locally through creative events and art exhibitions.

As a collective, the artists have come together to deeply reflect on the Soul of America, and to dedicate works of art that may help us understand American in a more profound way.  Specific questions and ideas artists are exploring for this exhibit include:

  • Is there a collective soul of America?
  • Is the soul of America dying?  
  • Is there is a disconnect between rural culture and city culture?
  • Diversity, Interconnectedness, and the possibility of integration.
