ANNOUNCEMENT: Art of Democracy: 2012
Opening Reception was held on Election Day, Nov. 6th
after Hurricane Sandy caused a blackout at the Gallery.
The Art of Democracy 2012 Exhibition will launch on November 3, 2012 at
the Sacred Gallery in New York.
"Art of Democracy 2012" is the continuation of a series or art exhibits
founded by the New York Society of Etchers in 2005 to showcase art works with political and
social messages during the peak of national election cycles. The first show in 2006, the
Art of Persuasion, quickly morphed into a traveling exhibition which ended its national tour
in Chicago in November 2008.
From there it was joined across the United States by some 60 other inter-related exhibitions under the umbrella Art of Democracy Coalition of Exhibitions.
The Art of Democracy 2012 is an historic installment of the ongoing series of shows. This important national survey of politically charged artworks curated by Marshall Arisman will long be remembered as possibly the most significant such effort organized for presentation during the final days leading up to the 2012 presidential election.
