Too Much Sauce

Too Much Sauce.teen art exhibition

Too Much Sauce  
It means the sauciness of the kids
The creativity that the kids have
Their artistic flow

Too Much Sauce represents more than the Black vernacular vocabulary and surpasses notions of race, while simultaneously recognizing its consequences. This exhibition brings together UW students, staff, and the youth of greater Madison to celebrate cultural relativity, political awareness, and human growth and development. This 15 week project emphasizes the multivocality and diversity of the youth who are at the forefront of of our nation’s revolution, yet are the stones that the builder refuses. The art in this exhibition tells stories about our youth, survival, and thriving in an environment where the stakes are high.
