Opening Reception: Saturday, August 12, 6-9pm
Historically, museums have long been at the forefront of presenting and preserving our cultural values through their exhibitions and collections. Artists have reflected and documented what is happening in their communities and in society. Through their artwork, they have the opportunity to encourage contemplation, conversation, and/or action on some of the most important issues of our lifetime. With that said, AMOCA has invited artists from across the country to “serve notice” on a range of issues including: capital punishment; environmental protection; freedom of speech; gender equality; human rights; immigration; racism; wildlife protection; and women’s rights.
