Protest: An American Tradition Art Show

565 Pearl Street #100, La Jolla, 92037
Cost: $5 - $30

Misfit Gallery presents 'Protest: An American Tradition', a group art show, and a fundraiser for Syrian Refugee Relief. Throughout history artists have been on the forefront of exposing injustice to magnify societal and political turmoil through mediums of photography, paintings, music, spoken word and more. This Pop Up Art Opening showcases works that evoke deep respect and contemplative thought towards pressing issues of our dynamic and progressive socio-political climates. Featured local and international artists address societal complacency toward Political Corruption, Racism, Xenophobia, Police Brutality, Misogyny, Attack on Free Press and Human Rights, Nuclear Threat, Military Industrial Complex, Homophobia, Indoctrination Instead of Education, White Supremacy, Mass Incarceration, Health Crisis, Inequality, Uncapped Greed, Environmental Degradation, Poverty, Gun Violence and Parasitic Officials in high offices. The gallery is proud to feature works by: LIBRE, Neil Shigley, Joe Galarza, Hugo Crosthwaite, CHIKLE, Pam Covarrubias, Junco Canche, Bridget Rountree, Ricardo Islas, Oblivion and more. Spoken word narrated by Third Act of Creation. Revolutionary beats by dj KIDRAGON. Highlight of featured artist Neil Shigley : "Nobility, beauty, strength, vulnerability.." These words perfectly describe the compelling work of Neil Shigley, the participating artist and author of the poster image on our 'Protest' exhibition. Creator of the well-known large-scale mural along the Martin Luther King Jr. freeway in San Diego, Neil is a San Diego artist, painter, printmaker and educator, currently teaching art at San Diego State University. His portrait of Emma Gonzalez, the outspoken survivor of Parkland High shooting, is so powerful, and we cannot wait for you to see it at the opening of our show. Proceeds will be donated in support of Syrian American Medical Society's international missions to aid Syrian Refugees. The Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS) is a nonpolitical, nonprofit medical relief organization that is working on the front lines of crisis relief in Syria and neighboring countries to alleviate suffering and save lives. SAMS proudly provides medical care and treatment to every patient in need. https://www.sams-usa.net/
