We the People: Serving Notice

August 5, 2017 – March 18, 2018
Opening Reception: Saturday, August 12, 6-9pm

Beth Ann Gerstein, AMOCA’s Executive Director will provide an overview of the exhibition and participating artists Nuala Creed and Courtney Mattison will discuss their work and inspiration @ 6:30pm.

Our current political and social climate is arguably one of the more divisive and turbulent periods in the past 50 years. There are feelings of anger, sadness, and fear ― but also of hope, compassion, and unity.

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.
