After typing
more than 2,500 postcards to the President from dozens of campuses and other
locations around the country, Sheryl Oring’s I WISH TO SAY is coming to
Monmouth to engage students in discussions about politics and social change.
Oring sets up a pop-up public office on campus–complete with a manual
typewriter–and invites students to dictate postcards to the next President.

Sheryl Oring’s work examines
social issues through projects that incorporate old and new media to tell
stories, examine public opinion and foster open exchange. Oring’s work has been
shown at Bryant Park in New York City; the Berlin Wall Memorial; the Jewish
Museum Berlin; the 01SJ Biennial in San Jose, CA; the San Diego Museum of Art;
as well as in major festivals such as Encuentro in São PauloBrazil,
the Art Prospect Festival in St. Petersburg, Russia, and Art in Odd Places in
New York City. She recently completed a large-scale public art installation at
the San Diego International Airport and currently works as an Assistant
Professor of Art at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Oring is
the recipient of grants from Franklin Furnace and Creative Capital. Her
forthcoming book Activating Democracy: The I Wish to Say Project is due out in Fall 2016 from Intellect Books/University of Chicago Press.

Marked, Unmarked, Remembered: A Geography of American History (Photographs by Andrew Lichtenstein)

From Wounded Knee to the Edmund Pettus Bridge, Marked, Unmarked, Remembered presents photographs by Andrew Lichtenstein of significant sites from U.S. history, posing unsettling questions about the contested memory of traumatic episodes from the nations past. Focusing especially on landscapes related to African American, Native American and labor history, Lichtenstein reveals new vistas of officially commemorated sites, sites that are neglected or obscured, and sites that serve as a gathering place for active rituals of organized memory.

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.
