The Art of Carnival Exhibits promotes and enhances cultural and historical awareness of the West Indian American Carnivals. The goal of the exhibit is to expand the cultural experience of the carnival to new audiences as the exhibit tours the country and eventually Trinidad. The gallery experience includes a lecture on the history of the West Indian American Carnival. The educational portion of the exhibit explains how and why the carnival started, an explanation of the historical characters, and their significant. Viewers will gain a new perspective on how they see at the parade. Carnival lovers and art collectors will celebrate and have an opportunity to own the spirit of West Indian Carnival.  

Weldon traveled around the country capturing the culture and festive expressions of many Caribbean American carnivals. After several years painting these experiences he is sharing his creations with the best audience for such a show, the Carnival audience. Most of the artist’s work features images from the 2002 - 2017 carnivals NYC to Miami. This exhibit and lecture will connect the gallery’s audience to the 2018 West Indian American Carnival.
