Poet and Curator, Elizabeth Ash, is a born and raised New Yorker and Twin Cities transplant. She has learned (with ease) to call both home. 

Ash is passionate about collaboration across the arts. She is currently organizing an exhibit titled “Blood on the Pavement,” which pairs poetry and visual art to spark conversations about violence against Black bodies. The art exhibit will have Opening Night activities on First Thursday, May 5, 2022, from 5:00 – 9:00 PM at the Northrup King Building third floor gallery (studio 332):

  • 5:00PM Open Mic featuring Michael Kleber-Diggs
  • 6:30PM Artist talk lead by Nikki McComb
  • 7:00PM Reading featuring Elizabeth Ash, Carolyn Holbrook and Ty Chapman.

Poet and curator, Elizabeth Ash, began constructing ideas and poetry for this exhibit in May 2020 after George Floyd’s murder. She is angered and deeply pained that the exhibit remains relevant, and hopes communities throughout Minnesota will come to offer their support. “Show up and look at the continued reality of this country. Show up and take part in the hard conversations. Show up and stand together in pursuit of justice and change.” Ash views the exhibit as an act of resistance and resilience.

Blood on the Pavement will be participating in Art-A-Whirl 2022 from May 20 – 22. Closing Night is May 28 from 5:00 – 8:00 PM. The silent auction for Today’s Decisions (George Floyd), a work by painter Owen Brown, will end at 6:30 PM. Auction proceeds will be donated to a non-profit chosen by the winning bidder from a pre-selected list of organizations serving the Twin Cities’ BIPOC community.
