TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) —Tallahassee artists are showing people what justice means to them through pictures and poetry.

It's part of the new exhibit at the LeMoyne Arts Gallery, featuring artists of all ages.

They started accepting submissions after the death of George Floyd.
The hope is to give people in town a way to express how they feel about important social justice issues, while also finding a way to heal through expression.

One artist tells us he wants to help start meaningful conversations.

"The artists have taken different aspects of their medium and just blended together these elements to tell us that we're all equal,” says exhibiting artist Jerry Rumph, “that we need to keep striving for equality in our country. That racism is wrong."

You can check out the displays now through September 2st.
