Owning Protest Art

When: Wed., Sept. 13 2017

With the current socio-political climate, it seems like a perfect time for a show titled Art of Dissent. Hosted by the Shaker Community Gallery, Art of Dissent remains on view through Oct. 7. This group exhibition showcases the work of Cleveland-based artists known for expressing their dissatisfaction with the status quo and current issues such as economic inequalities, polarizing politics and an abusive culture. Participating artists include Laura and Gary Dumm, Liz Maugans and Michelangelo Lovelace. The Shaker Community Gallery hosts several related community forums this month, beginning with tonight's forum, Owning Protest Art, with Akron Art Museum associate curator Theresa Bembnister, and Kim Bell, the Hadden Chair of Psychoanalytic Child Development at Case Western Reserve University. The talk begins at 7 p.m. The exhibition and all related events are free. (Usmani)
