Bliss Consciousness The Paintings of Mikel Elam

Bliss Consciousness is a thoughtful expressive exhibition of paintings of acrylic, drawings, collages, and more by Philadelphia artist Mikel Elam. The promotional material is descriptive: “Bliss Consciousness brings together recent works that connect Elam’s interests in mindfulness, Afrofuturism, and an overarching philosophy of love. The subjects become abstracted through his process of layering, erasing, deconstructing, and reimagining imagery.” Elam, a visual artist in the art of mixed media, blends themes of history, futurism, and cultural unity. The exhibit is curated by Heather Moqtaderi of Past Present Projects. Free, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST. It is supported by the Sachs Program for Arts Innovation and produced by The Sachs Program for Arts Innovation with Penn Live Arts. Annenberg Center Feintuch Family Lobby, 3680 Walnut St., 215-898-3900 or
