Jackson Shuri’s Cognitive Extravaganza on Exhibit as Miramar Celebrates Caribbean-American Heritage Month, June 18th, 2014, Florida

Artwork by several well-renowned and aspiring Caribbean artists will be on exhibit throughout the City of Miramar as the City celebrates June as Caribbean-American Heritage Month.

Jackson Shuri’s most recent series of paintings, entitled Cognitive Extravaganza will be on display at the city’s Multi-Service Complex, located at 6700 Miramar Parkway, Miramar Florida. The multimedia artist creates sensory and cognitively stimulating works of varying sizes, hues and textures. Her practice is both conceptual and tribal. The tribal works pay tribute to various elements, people and places that are of importance within the Diaspora while her conceptual work is a fusion of expressionism and abstraction.  Three of Jackson Shuri’s large scale paintings will be on display.   

The public is invited to the artist reception on Wednesday, June 18, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm, featuring live musical performances by The Iricals and Rara Kuyua.

The City of Miramar has long recognized the importance of connecting its residents with their heritage through the arts.  The celebration of the diverse traditions and cultural heritage of its residents are essential to building a strong and vibrant community.

The Celebration of June as Caribbean-American Heritage Month is an affirmation of the City’s commitment.
