theNeuwPolitic:  Artists Explore inlcudes work from 50 artists representing 7 counties in Northern and Central California and will explore the current political climate as each individual artist envisions it.

Artists were asked to consider this question: “Now is the time for a much-needed dialogue surrounding politics; can art help start these conversations and facilitate the connections that are so needed?”Now is the time for a much-needed dialogue surrounding politics, and artistic expression provides us with a unique platform to share that dialogue. Art gives us a voice, it unites, and tells unique stories. In times of great change and turmoil, art can provide a solace, a human connection across the time spectrum.
