Curated by Douglas Pierre Baulos, Nurture examines the idea of nurture versus nature in fine arts. Exhibiting
will be 20 artists and members from the building. Baulos states “In my own artwork I’m particularly interested
in creating objects that are instructive – works that embody a message, learning/or depict inner lives as well
as outer.” Baulos’s drawings, installations, and books have been exhibited/published both nationally and internationally. He is in the collections of numerous museums from The Museum of Modern Art, the J.P. Getty Museum, Los Angeles, CA to I Ching Design, Phnom, Cambodia.  He is assistant professor of drawing and bookmaking at The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB).

Additionally, opening March 8th will be the new 21st Street Project Space on the third floor, Nature Rhythms,
curated by Tara Stallworth Lee, Maggie King and Susan Vitali. Project Space is an open area in the building
for artists to curate and explore ideas.
Located under one roof, Ground Floor Contemporary and 21st Street Studios are contemporary art galleries
with studios providing exhibition opportunities for its resident and member artists, and committed to promoting
and expanding the visual arts in the greater Birmingham area. Both galleries are open to the public from 1pm
to 4pm on Sundays during exhibitions and by appointment at other times.
