2016 art exhibits were so incredible that we couldn’t possibly cover all of them. In fact, some of the year’s best exhibits were the ones we’ve seen and haven’t had the chance to share with you, just yet. Take a look at some 2016 art exhibits you probably haven’t seen.
Dead Treez was a garden of delicate flowers that harnessed the epidemic of murdered youth on the lower rungs of Jamaica’s socioeconomic ladder. In the exhibition, 10 central male mannequins modeled dancehall fashion and culture, while five unconventional tapestries and a garden cemetery symbolized class, gender, race and the media.
Silence of the Music
Silence of the Music was inspired by the rapidly-growing Hip Hop graffiti movement in New York City.

The Italian Renaissance terracotta collection features works depicting the Madonna, Gloria in excelsis and many other legends from the Catholic church.
