A visual response to dance culture. 

The group exhibition Dance Party! captures the spirit and visual culture surrounding dance as a social activity. Creativity Explored artists explore dance as a communal experience through ephemera, popular culture, and ritual. Dance Party! reveals the desires, aspirations, and relationships involved in the social arena of dance. In addition to over 30 paintings, drawings, and installation art, the exhibit includes video documentations of performances by Yolanda Ramirez.
