INSIGHT ArtTalk: October 5, 7pm
This exhibition is timed to sync with the 2016 Presidential election. In this current election season, we have been bombarded with political rhetoric, reporting, and advertising. As we inch closer to November 8th, opportunities are rife for artists to examine political rhetoric, social realities, and our national ideals. The invited artists in this exhibition address not only policies that candidates declare on their respective platforms, but also the broad demagoguery of the American social and political landscape.
Norman Akers • Vanessa German • Archie Scott Gobber • Michael Krueger • Penny Mateer
