Since 1989, Visual Artists Guild's "Art & Democracy" series, an exhibit of varied media, representing the struggle for democracy, justice and human rights, has created a space for the world to celebrate freedom of expression. For our fifth show with the theme of Art & Democracy on the 25th Anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre and the Fall of the Berlin Wall, we have selected 37 artists from an unprecedented number of entries from all over the world. Participating artists represent countries from the Middle East, Asia, Europe and the Americas. Art works of different media include: paintings, sculptures, photographs, installations and video. Our artists' concerns include: social equality; human rights and civil liberties; the violence of war; history in retrospect; female empowerment and environmental conservation.
