Southside Manifesto 6-10 pm "I probably have half a million social concerns that bother me, an steam me up to no end. were talking a troubled world in need of life support or at least thinkers for positive change, to open up a forum for a better neighborhood, a better world. so I printed up some flyers, passed them out to libraries an meeting places across the city asking artists to participate in a group show of art of social an political concerns an to do so in a visual context. I was interested in getting a pulse from the streets. the show is a grouping of established artists, the young and new, the great and not so great. but all have a message from the personal to the universal to ponder and inspire. I hope the viewer will learn an gain some insight an lead one on a journey for positive change and a better world."
