In This Time is a juried exhibition that seeks to explore creative responses to the current state of our communities, our nation and our world. Throughout history, artists have confronted, examined and responded to the issues of their moment. Today, the crises that are actively defining this time – from quarantine to climate change, from social justice to economic uncertainty— fundamentally impact our lives. This moment calls out for artists to help us collectively make sense of who and where we are. In This Time we rely on our creative community to explore the issues we confront. Through the arts we have opportunities to connect, heal, share diverse perspectives, and envision possibilities for change. Art can be witness, art can be a call to action, art can invite dialog. Above all, art creates community & nurtures social imagination. In this way the exhibition will support the Carnegie Arts Center’s mission to be the community’s resource for discovering and learning through the arts.
