The artwork in this exhibit celebrates the basic human ideals of freedom, justice and equality. Some artists in the group came to that theme through faith, others through spirituality, and others through intellectual thought. No matter the reason, they were motivated by and learned from each other while creating this collaborative work.

This country is experiencing a difficult period, and as in other dark periods, the role of the artist can be to hold up a mirror, as well as to spark change. The goal of this exhibit is to be a reminder of the ideals this country was founded upon and the struggle for rights that ensued throughout our history to strengthen those ideals. It shows the power of friendship, community, faith, and love, and hopefully provides light and inspiration to stand up for our freedoms, our rights and for the dignity of all people.

The Goldman Gallery is open when the Bender JCC is open.
