ARTISTS AGAINST THE WAR
The Society of Illustrators in collaboration with The Nation Presents Artists Against the War
Opening reception: Wednesday, January 9th, 2008
6 – 9 pm
128 East 63rd, New York City
$20 for non-members; $15 for SI members
100% of the proceeds go to Disabled American Veterans, in support of disabled veterans and their families.
From the SI Website:
“This show is the expression of over 60 of the top graphic artists and illustrators working in the United States and abroad whose anguish has compelled them to produce works that challenge the self-destructive ignorance, indifference, incompetence and corruption that is the result of US Middle East foreign policy. These works of art will give a voice to those whose views are not represented by the mainstream media. We will be using this forum as a way to support those most directly affected by the harsh consequences of military combat—the brave men and women who serve their country as well as their family members who must live with the affects of war long after the parades are over.”
