Hybrid Opening Reception
Online participation will be through Zoom.
In-person location will be at West Windsor Arts Center, 952 Alexander Road, West Windsor, NJ 08550.
Join us online or in-person for our opening reception of Manifesting Beloved Community. In partnership with Art Against Racism, a 501(c)3 organization, this exhibition invited artists to explore what it means to live in a nation or world designed around social and economic justice without the ills of structural racism. Inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “Beloved Community” represents a global vision where all people share in the wealth of a healed planet. Submissions that speak to or re-envision society’s transformation into a world of healthy people, relationships and communities in personal or public contexts were encouraged.
Juror Sonia E. Barrett will join virtually and exhibiting artists will be on hand to discuss their work.
