In our mission to making art accessible to all, our upcoming theme, The Art of Giving Back, opens on November 8th at 5:30-7:30. Artworks include activist Wendy Abram’s conceptual project called, Invisible Words, an exercise in empathy as Wendy has been purchasing signs made by homeless people. Her intention is help all of see the humanity behind the signs. Project Resist Fear, by artist and guest juror Kelly Mathews, is an interactive and ongoing collaboration with the community to share our fears as Kelly creates panels of Resist Fear reminding us that we are not alone. We are also exhibiting 7 artists who incorporate an element of service in their work, from portraits of CPS principals to donating works to charities. And finally, in our own mission to give back, we are coordinating with an artist community from Keshet to exhibit works by those with intellectual or developmental challenges.
Contributing Artists Include:
Wendy Abrams, Kelly Mathews, Michael Birnbaum, Suzette Bross, Michele Flynn, Patricia RAIN Gianneschi, Erin Kaya, Paul-Felix Montez, Justin Coe, artists from Keshet.
