Exhibit: We the People

Tuesday, Jan. 22nd - Thursday, Jan. 31st
$12; From: 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Some of the most imaginative and dynamic artists working today are exploring what it means to be a citizen of the 21st century. Whether creating paintings or videos, sculptures or photographs, the artists are interested in how we define our identities, form our communities, and confront the various forces that shape our lives.Taken as an ensemble, the works in We the People raise questions that encourage us to think about our place in a constantly evolving world. Who are we? What are our values and how are they formed? How do we imagine our future? These questions arise from a complex and often contradictory set of experiences and circumstances, ranging from our engagement with popular culture to our political debates, physical environment, and the historical narratives that shape our sense of self.
