2024 MANIFESTING BELOVED COMMUNITY exhibition GALLERY

Art Against Racism, in partnership with the West Windsor Arts Council, located in West Windsor, New Jersey, invited artists to visualize what it means to create or live in a nation or world designed around social and economic justice beyond the ills of structural racism. Inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “Beloved Community” represents a global vision where all people share in the wealth of a healed planet. We asked that artists explore one or more themes in their work that relate to: economic justice, healthcare, housing, employment, the environment, and cultural expression.

JUROR – Leslie King-Hammond (born 1944) is an American artist, curator and art historian who is the Founding Director of the Center for Race and Culture at the Maryland Institute College of Art, where she is also Graduate Dean Emeritus.
