We're excited to start sharing our new project, Creative Activism. Oakopolis is stepping outside the gallery walls to explore a revolving, group show online. We’re encouraging artists to participate in an ever shifting stream of art works that explore the intersection of art and activism. Jeanne Jabbour and Joell Jones are the first artists to join in this creative exploration with us. Their work speaks to the concerns surrounding us as individuals and as a larger community. While using two drastically different approaches, the pieces seem to speak to each other and communicate on a personal level with the viewer.
The online show will grow and shift over time, with new artists adding to the gallery as we go along. We hope to see many more artists join in expressing both hopes and concerns about the current local and global issues. Join us in making change through art and community, and see where our new project takes us.
