Artists as Historians? It's "Common Sense"!

Abigail Markov - Beauty in Chaos

As artists, our means of protest are inherently peaceful.  We are declarative with ink, paint, clay and with the most volatile of all mediums, words.  At the end of the day, even the most benign of artistic expressions require courage to display. 
Julio Garcia - Abe Lincoln

Artistic political expressions are where society makes its most profound discoveries and where historically the records of cultures are espoused.  This show is a microcosm of the artist’s pursuit of this lofty goal.  A testimony by 18 artists of their view of the steps we are all taking towards the recording history.
