THE CITY OF WEST HOLLYWOOD PRESENTS
VISUAL ARTISTS GUILD
ART & DEMOCRACY VI
The sixth in a series of art exhibitions by Visual Artists Guild with the theme of Art & Democracy. Our participating artists from all over the world responded with their art works that address the issues of human rights, immigrants rights, democratic aspirations, social justice and freedom of speech and expression. This event attempts to keep alive the dialogue of Freedom and Democracy and to highlight the 30th Anniversary of the 1989 Tiananmen Massacre and the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the collapse of Eastern Europe. With this exhibit, Visual Artists Guild hopes to create a space for the world to celebrate human rights, freedom of speech and democracy. Specials events include artists meet-and-greets, a Democracy Forum and Artists forum.
Of note is two of the three art works by US based Chinese artist Bing Weng that were censored by the City of Cary in North Carolina are going to be exhibited here.
