An epidemic of violence is on the rise across the US, from local teen gang shootings to family-on-family homicides to mass killings at theaters, churches, and schools. One in 20 US students is directly impacted by violence today, as either victim or offender.
To provide a forum for artists to share their unique problem solving abilities and powerful artistic responses to this urgent societal problem, Contemporary Craft presents the world premiere exhibition ENOUGH Violence: Artists Speak Out, featuring over 40 works by US and European contemporary artists. The project will center on the impact that this national epidemic is having on our cities and the role the arts can play in helping to provide solutions.
Hardcopies of the ENOUGH Violence: Artists Speak Out catalogue are now available for $17 in the SCC Store. You can also order online – email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
