Artists as Activists Sneak Peek

Arts & Culture

SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY SEP 11, 2020

As thousands of people are demonstrating across the world against racism, Florida CraftArt is presenting a dynamic exhibition, “Artists as Activists – A Sneak Peek.” As artists are often the harbingers of community problems, the ones to sound the alarm of danger to our democracy or bring a crucial awareness to a social issue. This exhibit features artists who create socially engaged art and inspire dialogue within the community. The current “Sneak Peek” is being offered because many artists had created outstanding works of art that are tied to current events. The exhibit is curated by Rolando Barrero, artist and owner of The Box Gallery in West Palm Beach, Florida. “Artists as Activists is more than an exhibition, it a series of visual commentaries of the impact that current cultural climate has had on artists,” says Mr. Barrero. “The works included explore the unique and independent voices of artists as activists and questions the efficacy of the artist to create change in society.”
