Monmouth University Presents Artivism

Monmouth University Presents Artivism

(WEST LONG BRANCH, NJ) -- The Center for the Arts at Monmouth University presents its art and activism exhibit, Artivism, now through Thursday, May 31 at the University’s Pollak Gallery. As a universal language, the arts are heralded as an effective way to address social issues. Artivism or "activist art" is a form of social protest that explores cultural and political concerns. Even more, Artivism is a practice that attempts to raise awareness and inspire positive social change, through visual creations on canvas, in photography, through sculpture, installations, and more.

This juried exhibition features artworks that employ spectacle, symbolism and collective participation to fight for issues of social justice including racial discrimination, gender equality, fair labor practices, human rights and more. 

Works were chosen from a selection of nearly 350 submissions that came in from countries all over the world. In addition to many artists from New Jersey, the exhibit features works by artists from California to Western Europe.

Making Newark A City Of The Arts

If you recall, back in January, I reported on Newark’s community info session for the conversion of a long dormant bank building on South Ward’s Clinton Ave. into an artist’s housing and creative community center. That session, and the details shared, is just one of the multi-pronged efforts Brick City is making to revitalize every ward in Newark, not just the downtown area. It’s also a part of Newark’s efforts to brand itself as a “city of the arts.”
