“Exploration of the Youniverse Vol. 2,” an exhibit by the artist Alana Enfinity, will open at Troy University’s Rosa Parks Museum on Thursday, Aug. 17.
An opening reception, featuring light hors d’oeuvres, will be held in the museum’s Exhibit Hall beginning at 6 p.m. The free exhibit is available for viewing in the museum’s gallery Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.
In a world that emphasizes emotions and external beauty, Enfinity’s exhibit focuses on the true beauty that lies in authenticity and vulnerability within.
“Ultimately, my show speaks to the importance of embracing our inner selves,” Enfinity said. “By acknowledging our fears, our hopes, our desires, we begin to understand ourselves better. We begin to understand the world better. Through my art, I hope to inspire others to embark on their own journeys of self-discovery and self-acceptance.”
Enfinity currently resides in Montgomery, but was born in San Francisco, CA, and raised in the Twin Cities of Minnesota. Her travels helped influence her perspectives on life and art.
At a young age, Enfinity was introduced to art and its possibilities. Having an unstable home life, she was able to find comfort and constancy in art. She navigated through several mediums throughout her development as an artist and uses her understanding of these diverse mediums and processes to create works that symbolize the healing processes encountered in life. In her artistry, viewers will see recurring visual stories of healing, symbolism and technology through expansion.
