Artivism

Apr 1-May 31

Artivism 

Pollak Gallery - 10 AM

As a universal language, the arts have always been an effective tool for addressing social issues. Artivism or "activist art" is a form of social protest that explores cultural and political concerns. However, it is much more than just an innovative tactic, Artivism involves an entire practice that attempts to inspire positive change in society. This juried exhibition will feature works of art that employ spectacle, symbolism and collective participation to fight for issues of social justice including racial discrimination, gender equality, fair labor practices, human rights and more.

Doo Wop Explosion III "A Celebration of Acapella Harmony 

Pollak Theatre - 7 PM

For the third year in a row, our celebration of doo wop acapella harmony returns to Monmouth University's Pollak Theatre. Born on the street corners of urban America, rhythm & blues and doo wop singing reached its peak in the 1950’s, and still has a strong following today. While doo wop singing began as an African American art form, by the late 1950’s it was enjoyed by singers of all races. Doo wop harmony in its purist form is acapella (without instruments or musical tracks).
