Overview of the Discussion:
This discussion panel will focus on the artists featured in the exhibition, who are all Brooklyn based, and art organizations that promote artistic development of the community, as we will attempt to go deeper into the theme of the exhibition and explore the artists' creative process. The purpose of the panel is to discuss how artists can use their creative talents to inspire change: socially, politically, community, and personally. What effect does art have on the community? Why should we encourage art in the public school systems and in the inner-city?
About the “Live to Change Something Through Art” Exhibit: features work that is reflective of the current Brooklyn arts movement and underscores Coup d’etat’s thought-provoking brand principle, “Live to Change Something.” Highlighting a multicultural collective of artists across several disciplines, the exhibition encompasses painting, photography, and sculpture.
