In 1992, Steven Bernard Jones began working on a mosaic mural project with John Yancey; at the same time, he was working on map drawings. While working on these two seemingly disparate types of work, he realized that they would allow him to be in bliss, an attractive idea for an African American man. Drawing on maps provided a way of thinking about social and political issues, redacting visual information with his Sharpie marker.

In 2004 Jones began a sculpture series based on the Illuminati and Masonic initiations, creating sculptural artworks starting at 33 degrees and continuing down to 1 degree. Using his artistic license, he was working his way from 33 degrees to 1 degree, with each sculpture representing the initiation of a degree. Using broken tile mosaics, he completed his series to the 25th degree.

The exhibit will be on view through September 16.
