WE BEND, NOT BREAK
America’s history has been faced with 400 years of perseverance starting with the Jamestown Settlement. Taking people from their homelands and placing them in shackles for the sake of sowing land is an old story but continues in other forms of bondage. This exhibit was intended to enlighten our visitors to the plight of African-Americans and other historically and currently marginalized groups.
Nine Gallery35 and four guest artists showed works which dramatically depicted both the struggles and triumphs of oppressed peoples in a variety of media and styles.
