South Bay Contemporary is planning an art exhibition to correspond with the presidential inauguration in January 2017. We are looking for artwork that touches on issues that face our country. SBC will display the art along with the artists’ letters to the president as a statement. All the artwork and letters will be combined into a catalog that will be mailed out to Washington DC to the President, other representatives and the press.
If you have been following the presidential debates, some of America’s major issues have been brought into focus:
Money in Politics, Climate Change, Military Quagmires, Women’s Reproductive Rights, Education, Polarization (Cultural divisiveness), Inequality (social and economic), Gun Control, Immigration, Military Spending, GMO, Fracking, Space, Drug Policy, Welfare, Criminal Justice, and more…
