Stephen Towns’ Private Paradise: A Figurative Exploration of Black Rest and Recreation

From September 21, 2024 to January 19, 2025

Location: Spotlight Gallery (Floor 1M)

Inspired by Black American History, Stephen Towns creates paintings and quilts that bring these sometimes hidden stories back into the light. In Towns’s most recent series, he explores Paradise Park, a segregated park in mid-20th century Silver Springs, Florida. Connecting the photographs and the stories of those who worked, created and visited the park, Towns gives viewers a glimpse of a free space to be Black in a region with few opportunities for equality.
