What's Your Elephant

About

What's Your Elephant™ is a 501(c)(3) charitable arts and educational organization dedicated to catalyzing awareness and fostering dialogue around under-addressed topics. Through a dynamic combination of art exhibits, interactive installations, talks and workshops, we provoke awareness and facilitate discussions on issues including, but not limited to, gender, LGBTQ matters, social justice, placemaking, discrimination, and abuse.

What's Your Elephant™ is a movement that uses the arts to create a safe space to address all that is unspoken. By way of the arts, interactive exhibitions, talks and workshops. As well as cultural programming, and community engagement.

About the Founder:
Niki Lopez Afro-Latina, Lesbian interdisciplinary visual artist, curator, social practitioner and award-winning designer. Known for her vibrant color palette, avant-garde exhibitions, masks, and a collection of works dealing with traumas and healing through the arts inspiring the creation of the transformative arts movement "What’s Your Elephant®" - which uses the arts to address the unspoken.

Lopez's recent mixed-media reliefs incorporate masks and masks elements exemplifying components of her meditative journey towards Afrocentric spirituality, self-discovery, reflection, healing, restoration, and social justice. Exploring various media, intuitive mark-making, and free-flowing strokes, her work evokes a sense of movement, and energy.

Lopez's contributions to the arts were recognized with a 2021 Kennedy Center Citizen Artist Fellow nomination and the 2020 Broward County’s Arts & Culture Visionaries Award by ArtServe. Her philanthropic actions include donating works to support various causes such as the World AIDS Museum and Educational Center, HRC-Human Rights Campaign, and Equality Florida.

My business follows a policy of non-discrimination that includes sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
