This is a Juried Show.

Artists have used their voice to shed light on social, historical and political issues throughout history - Daumier providing commentary on the politics of 19C France; Picasso’s Guernica bringing attention to the horrors of the Spanish Civil War; Harlem Renaissance artists shedding light on the African American Experience; WPA artists illustrating life in the Great Depression and the plight of the poor.

We are living in a period where it seems like people are finding their voice, and yet there is no conversation.  The dialogue between disparate voices is not happening. Art can provide an opening to the discourse by showing issues through a new perspective and telling stories through a voice you hadn’t yet heard.  We would like to hear YOUR voice, sharing your perspective.  Our intention with this show is to give voice to the full spectrum of stories and experience.  Through a series of gallery talks and community discussions we hope to start a dialogue to promote understanding. 

We look forward to displaying 2-D and 3-D works as well as audio and video work, however audio/visual technology will need to be provided by the artist.  We have outdoor display area for exterior sculpture.
