Funky Spirits, 2003-2004.

Tampa artist Şangoyemi Ogunsanya works in a variety of media to explore her personal blending of African mythology, nature, and contemporary African-American culture. Included in this exhibition are collages, sculptures, and mixed media constructions. The exhibition consists of two parts. The first is a sculpture and video installation in the Murray Gallery on the second floor. The installation, entitled Funky Spirits, explores the relationship between funk music and African-American folk art and seeks to discover the hidden retention of African spirituality and wisdom therein. Funky Spirits will open December 23, 2003 and run through May 2, 2004.
