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.
