Citizen Artists Making Emphatic Arguments
In this election year, who will turn "saving" energy" from a mere ad campaign into a real lifestyle change and what will be the impact on the future of the nation? In 18th Street Arts Center’s new show "Citizen Artists Making Emphatic Arguments," curated by Adolfo V. Nodal, Citizen Artists not only step up to respond to a gloomy forecast in current world events, but they also address the problems with emphatic arguments toward making our world a better environment for the future of nations. The exhibit will include works by Ala Plastica, Lauren Bon, BULBO, CoLabART (Lynn Small + Dennis Paul), Echo Park Film Center, Fallen Fruit, Invisible 5, Natalie Jeremijenko, Newton & Helen Mayer Harrison, Tom Reddock, Shannon Spanhake, Kim Stringfellow, and Robert Tannen, as well as an installation in the project room by Los Animistas, 18th Street’s 2008 artist fellow. The opening reception will take place on July 12th from 6-9pm and the exhibit will run from July 12 through September 13, 2008.
