DESCRIPTION

School of Visual Arts (SVA) presents "Being American," an exhibition surveying responses by visual artists to some of the most pressing social issues in America today. Culled from various forms of contemporary visual culture, the works address topics ranging from recent environmental catastrophes to the pervading effects of the economic crisis; from the long shadow of 9/11 and two overseas wars to the home-front debates surrounding religious tolerance, gay marriage, capital punishment and firearms possession. Curated by Visual Arts Gallery Director Francis Di Tommaso, the exhibition will be on view at the Visual Arts Gallery, 601 West 26 Street, New York City, from November 22 - December 21.  Click here for more information
