About the exhibition:
The Women’s Caucus for Art (WCA), Philadelphia Chapter, presents Art in the Age of Injustice, a group exhibition by artists of the Women’s Caucus for Art.
Artists have always created work that address social, political, and environmental issues of their times. Often they are the first to confront the biggest challenges facing citizens, through provocative means. In response to Elie Wiesel’s statement, “There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest,” Mary Salvante, prominent curator and art administrator, has curated this exhibition to include artists representing different interpretations through paintings, photography, multi media and sculpture.
About the curator:
Ms. Salvante is the founding director of the NEA award winning environmental art program at The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education. She is also Gallery Director at Rowan University, and curator of innovative contemporary art exhibitions, and recipient of the Citation of Excellence Awards from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
