Opening at The Avenue 50 Studio is proud: Democracy and Art, a visual conversation of the role of art in a democracy. Thirty works were selected by curator, activist and art historian Carol A. Wells, who also serves as the founder and executive director of the Center for Study of Political Graphics. Chosen artists address the shifting meanings of freedom and equality, censorship and civil liberties. Using art as a vehicle for the discussion of political issues has a rich history, at times shrouded in censorship. Please join us as 23 artists converse on questions of democracy.
