Voice: The Charge of Art and Activism

Voice: The Charge of Art and Activism

Corita Kent, Give the Gang Our Best, 1966. Collection of the WCU Fine Art Museum. 

May 29 - July 28 

Through vastly different images, each artist is fearlessly devoted to exposing and giving voice to the often challenging issues facing the human condition. 

Every artist employs certain convictions in their work. For some, it is a commitment to the formal aesthetic and material possibilities of an image or piece. For others, the notion that art must be a thing of beauty is traded for the immediacy of the message and the desire to draw attention to social injustices and inequities, no matter how difficult the subject. The four artists represented in this exhibition, chosen from the WCU Fine Art Museum permanent collection, were selected for their humanist intervention as agents of change. Artists featured in this exhibition include Erwin Eisch, Drew Cameron, William Kelly, and Corita Kent.
