February 2, 6-9 pm,  First Thursday Art Walk,

Dear President is an art exhibition corresponding with the presidential inauguration in January 2017. The artwork being shown touches on issues that face our country. The art will be displayed along with the artists’ letters to the president as a statement. All the artwork and letters will be combined into a catalog that will be mailed out to Washington DC to the President, other representatives and the press. The catalog will also be available to order for purchase.

Artists have an unexpected way of contributing to the conversation through their unique visual interpretations. They bring a sensitivity and perspective to the issues through emotional expression, abstraction, visualization, humor, and parody. These works of art seek to create and communicate a collective narrative, articulating who we are, where we come from, what we stand for and what we are against.

Some of America’s major issues will be addressed in the exhibition such as: Money in Politics, Climate Change, Military Quagmires, Women’s Reproductive Rights, Education, Polarization (Cultural divisiveness), Inequality (social and economic), Gun Control, Immigration, Military Spending, GMO, Fracking, Space, Drug Policy, Welfare, Criminal Justice, and more…
