Henry Wadsworth Longfellow once wrote that “art is long…time is fleeting.” Socio-political events are often fleeting in today’s news cycle, but when an artist responds to that event through her/his artwork, history is forever recorded.
This exhibition looks at a variety of artwork that responds to social and cultural inequities protested at various times in regional and national history.
