Art of Democracy

11.06.12 – 11.30.12, Art of Democracy” Curated by Marshall Arisman, Sacred Gallery NYC- Art of Democracy 2012 is the continuation of a series of art exhibits founded by the New York Society of Etchers in 2005 to showcase artworks with political and social messages during the peak of national election cycles. The first show of the series presented in the Fall of 2006, The Art of Persuasion, quickly morphed into a traveling exhibition which ended it’s national tour in Chicago in November 2008. There , it was joined across the United States by some 60 other inter-related exhibitions under the umbrella Art of Democracy Coalition of Exhibitions. The Art of Democracy 2012 is an historic installment of the ongoing series of shows. This important national survey of politically charged artworks curated by Marshall Arisman will be remembered as one of the most significant such efforts organized during the final days leading up to the 2008 presidential election.
