Artists have long been at the forefront of social change through revolutionary and, at times, subversive means of transcending both physical and hidden boundaries. Contemporary art often acts as a mirror for barriers within all societies, challenging viewers to confront oppressive social, political, or cultural divisions. Can art be the catalyst to break down these confines? What barricades have you encountered that have impacted not only your work as an artist, but your life and belief system as well? Art & Barriers pays homage to all artists who daily break through limitations of any kind.
Art & Barriers will be a juried DOSHI Gallery exhibition on view at the State Museum of Pennsylvania. During the Susquehanna Art Museum's transitional period into our new location in Midtown, Harrisburg, we are continuing to collaborate with area arts organizations for exhibitions and educational programming space.
