The Boxing Gym

Oct. 20-Dec. 18

Using photographs, poetry and film, artists de’Angelo Dia and Shaun El C. Leonardo have created an exhibit based around a former boxer whose career has gone from glory to gloom. In the exhibit, we see the boxer in an abandoned gym with punching bags and debris on the floor around him. This former “macho” man sits with no punches to be thrown, as the exhibit makes a statement about the kickback associated with pain. (Anita Overcash) Free admission
