Poetry Unleashed: Voices of the Economy is in conjunction with the current exhibition on display at Art for Change, Faces of the Economy, a group art exhibition which deconstructs our economic structures to explore current pressures such as outsourcing of jobs overseas, lack of an adequate living wage against rising housing costs, and low job security, featuring artists Kiran Chandra, Elvira Clayton, Michael D’Antuono, Alexis Duque, Alejandro Guzman, Kathleena Howie-Garcia, Ijeoma D. Iheanacho, Ellen Coleman Izzo, Marilyn A. Johnson, Jamie Kelty, Angela Mark, Dato Mio, Danielle Poletto, Michael Pribich, Ashok Sinha, Juana Valdes, and Sarah Young.
