This show will be exhibited in the midst of the 2020 presidential elections, a time when it will be more important than ever to make space for productive discussion about the future of our country. So although it’s normally a taboo, we’re inviting you to explore the theme of politics in creative ways. Voice your comments, questions, concerns, or support through your work in any art medium.
