What do you stand up for? Throughout history, artists have used their work to make political impressions, express personal feelings, defend the environment, etc. Artists are using this opportunity to make their stand. The Arts Group asked artists just that question, and this exhibit shows us what they believe, defend, and uphold.

Artists show their diversity in beliefs and passions in this exhibit that shouldn’t be missed. Contributing artists include: Christine Alexander, Donovan Borger, Janice DeMarino, Tabitha Gilmore-Barnes, Elaine Grandy, Christine Heller, Roshan Houshmand, Gary Mayer, Shannon McBride, Alan Powell, Kelsey Riordan, Robert Servo, Marilyn Silver, Bob Stewart, Ellen Stewart, Jean Tansey, Gerda van Leeuwen, John Virga, Ian Webster, Peter Yamaoka
