Philadelphia, PA – The Women’s Caucus for Art (WCA), Philadelphia Chapter, presents Art in the Age of Injustice, a group exhibition by accomplished women artists at the Da Vinci Art Alliance, **April 5 through April 26, 2017** with an opening reception Wednesday April 5th, 6-8pm
Artists have always created work that address social, political, and environmental issues of their times. Often they are the first to confront the biggest challenges facing citizens, through provocative means. In response to Elie Wiesel’s statement, “There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest,” Mary Salvante, prominent curator and art administrator, has juried in artists representing different interpretations through paintings, photography, multi media and sculpture.
Ms. Salvante is the founding director of the NEA award winning environmental art program at The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education. She is also Gallery Director at Rowan University, and curator of innovative contemporary art exhibitions, and recipient of the Citation of Excellence Awards from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
