State of the Art: Political Humor

October 25 - November 14, 2012

In time for November's presidential election, the FLC Art Gallery explores the theme of "Political Humor."  Showcasing emerging artists who use satire, mockery, and mirth, this exhibition invites viewers to reflect on democracy and its discontents on the eve of the 2012 elections.  The lineup includes: Roya Farassat, Eric J. Garcia, Katie Hargrave, Andrew Ellis Johnson, Carrie Kaser, George Lorio, Jason Noushin, Brian Piana, Paul Shortt, and Shan Wells.

Political Humor inaugurates our new State of the Art series of theme-based exhibitions, intended to raise thought-provoking questions about the role of contemporary art in today's rapidly changing world.

This exhibition was made possible through the generous support of Friends of the Fort Lewis College Art Gallery.
