The FOUR Elements Art Series

“The FOUR Elements Art Series is a new, vital platform for artists working in a range of media and at different stages of their careers to present their ideas. In addition to furthering their own artistic practices and experimentation, artists are also invited to respond directly to and activate the space through unique classes, events, actions, happenings, and events.

The mission of the Art Series is to incubate community exchange addressing issues around health and movement. A core component of this series is to recenter the voices of marginalized artists bringing critical insight and a more well-rounded dialogue into the public realm.

The Art Series is hosted by Four Elements Fitness, a WOC owned gym that offers a variety of services specifically for LGBTQ, POC, SW, and local groups working with at-risk individuals.”
