The Transformational Power of Art
|Dialogue: Peace by Barbara Romain|
The Fort Collins Museum of Art and the Lincoln Center Art Gallery invite you to experience the transformational power of art through Speaking Volumes: Transforming Hate. This dynamic exhibition, running January 20-March 19, showcases the diverse work of 39 artists who have transformed thousands of anti-Semitic and racist books into a visually powerful, thought-provoking, and ultimately deeply moving exhibition.
Artworks from the exhibition will be on view at both The Fort Collins Museum of Art and the Lincoln Center Art Gallery.
In conjunction with the exhibit, multiple community programs are also being offered – including special guest speaker Nate Phelps, a series of films, panel discussions, a special film and lectures event with DJ Spooky, a story time and a book club meeting.
Topics raised by the artworks and community programs are intended to spur community-wide reflection and dialogue on the possibility of transformation from a spirit of hatred and discrimination, toward one of openness, tolerance and justice.
This exhibition has been sponsored by the Montana Human Rights Network and organized by Curator Katie Knight.
