Popular Campaigns and Political Culture - National Juried Exhibition

November 2-30

 
,

Reception November 2, 6 - 8 PM
Juried by Liz Cohen
 

 

The Popular Campaigns and Political Culture Exhibition seeks creative works that explore the relationship of the political environment and popular culture. In visual culture, we have become saturated by media and advertising in an attempt to determine our cultural identity and political preference. This exhibition asks the artist to interpret the connections or point-of-overlap between art and propaganda. How do we, as artists, respond to everyday propaganda and express our social and political views?  This exhibition is open to all media.
$500 cash prize will be awarded to First place.  Juror Liz Cohen.
