Exposition Through Exhibition
Cultuvue, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is dedicated to celebrating the rich tapestry of black culture through captivating photography exhibitions. With a commitment to artistic and creative expression, each of our exhibitions combines photographic, interactive, and educational elements. Over the past three years, Cultuvue by Kenneth Grant lnzpirations has successfully curated and presented an impressive collection of over 200 portraits and art pieces.
Our exhibitions aim to transform the way we perceive African Americans, countering the negative cultural stereotypes prevalent in mainstream media and society. By showcasing these positive images and their accompanying narratives, we provide an insightful and free-of-charge curated exhibition experience. Our goal is to promote visual literacy, fostering communication and understanding among diverse ethnic groups.
WHAT IS CULTUVUE?
"A Must See....whatever your ethnicity. Experience beauty, passion, and excellence."
2024 EXHIBITION NEW COLLECTION SHOWING
International Speedway Square

Daytona Beach, FL
Cultuvue is dedicated to showcasing the richness of Black culture through the captivating medium of portraiture photography, with a particular focus on celebrating and empowering the younger generation. Our mission is to illuminate the vibrancy, diversity, and resilience of Black heritage while inspiring and uniting communities worldwide.
In retrospect, it's truly astonishing to witness the growing popularity of a beloved community hub in the spirited Daytona Beach area, where the richness of our surroundings is celebrated, and moments of profound inspiration are generously shared with those who gather. This remarkable growth is further exemplified by the expansion in scale and changing venues of each annual exhibition.
CULTUVUE PAST GALLERY
240 Daytona Blvd, Daytona Beach
In 2021, this 1300 sq ft venue was the very first location for Cultuvue™ (previously rePresent). It was located on the One Daytona campus.
230 Daytona Blvd #G600, Daytona Beach
In 2022, Cultuvue™ received a tremendous upgrade when the Photography Exhibition displayed in this 6600 sq ft venue.
International Speedway Square #550, Daytona Beach
In 2023, Cultuvue™ moved off the One Daytona campus and into this 7,000 sq ft venue. This would be the main location of two exhibits showing at the same time.
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Daytona Beach
Cultuvue™ entered into a partnership with ERAU to display a scaled version of the exhibit in their 700 sq ft Nicole Stott Gallery, the third exhibit in 2023.
Yvonne Scarlett Golden Education Center, Daytona Beach
Cultuvue™ expanded to showing two separate exhibits at the same time. This 19,500-square-foot community center housed the second exhibit in 2023.
A PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION
LIKE NONE OTHER
Our target audience is two-fold. On one hand, we seek to encourage and uplift communities of color, specifically elementary, middle, and high school students between the ages of 10 and 16 years of age. On the other, we seek to inform and educate all other ethnicities. We would also like to reach those who misunderstand our intent, which has never been political. With so few positive representations of people of color, this benefits all citizens by providing an environment that fosters cultural understanding and awareness.

THE CURATORS AND THEIR WHY
Hear from the founders and curators, James and LaToya Carey, about why they have a passion for executing Cultuvue.
INSPIRING THE NEXT GENERATION
The impact on the youth is important to the success of our exhibit. We seek to inspire the youth to dare to dream and become more than what they originally set out to be or do. We do this through curated exhibition tours, activities, and our Cultuvue Youth Day.
Wanting to raise awareness of the cultural importance and relevance of Cultuvue, we wanted to get the local media and publications involved to help spread the word. Partners, such as WESH 2 News, assisted in doing just that.
