Grounded 

When: Through Aug. 19
Telfair Museums will feature a commissioned work titled Grounded by Adolfo Alvarado, a Savannah-based artist whose work incorporates cal­ligraphic text, expansive swirls, and multiple layers of paint to create complex compositions that reference both medieval illuminated texts and graffiti culture. Grounded will explore a resident alien’s journey through past and present experiences, influenced by Alvarado’s upbring­ing in Mexico’s Ciudad Juaréz, a city whose vibrant culture and notorious violence continue to impact his work.
