BEYOND #METOO

Pollak Gallery

As a universal language the arts are a very effective tool for addressing social issues. The #metoo movement has brought to the surface long ignored injustices perpetrated mostly against women for generations that are finally screaming to be remedied. This juried exhibition will feature works that eloquently depicts remedies, that teach us how to honor women and others who have been maligned, how to implement change within our culture, to alter perceptions and ultimately excise this malady for future generations.

Listen to the album beforehand and then come prepared to discuss… there will be special guest moderators and panelists at each event! This event will feature Steely Dan’s Aja.
