In response to the current political crises in America, a cadre of diverse and talented artists are launching a year-long cross-country show into the heartland of America, united by the belief that art is and should be a catalyst for change. 
 
This timely exhibition supports those who are striving for freedom and resisting oppression.  The art features Donna Bassin’s powerful portraits of resistance from the daily onslaught of obliteration and silences; Marissa Bridge’s mixed media tributes to the children incarcerated at our borders; Barbara Friedman’s delicate landscapes touch upon the fragility and precarious future of our natural world.  Virginia Mallon’s work addresses #metoo and refugee and immigration issues, while fiber artist Dee Mallon focuses on the abandonment of thousands in the aftermath of natural disasters.  Australian artist Jessica Lindsay’s images spotlight the threat of rising waters and catastrophic fires faced in her homeland. Lydia Makepeace’s celebrates the long-ignored contributions of women of color, and Beatrice Lebreton’s work comment on women’s contributions to contemporary society.  Jessica Nissen explores the human role as conservator and destroyer of the natural world while the sculptures of community activist Yvonne Shortt center on equality, race and disability. Photographer and author Susan Saunders uses language and images for her work on immigration.  Jonathan Talbot’s work touches on gun control, mass shootings and voting rights.   
 
The tour launches in the Queens College Art Center on the 6th floor of the Rosenthal Library from March 20th to April 3, 2020.  The opening reception is on Wednesday, March 25th at 5:00 pm.
