Politics on Paper
Art with an Agenda from the Syracuse University Art Collection
For centuries, art has been used as a vehicle to inform the public, to illustrate a point of view, and to incite change. The introduction of printmaking, and later photography, played a significant role in politics due to the ease in which multiples could be produced and distributed to the general public. The new exhibit, Politics on Paper: Art with an Agenda from the Syracuse University Art Collection, uses drawings, prints and photos to examine the relationship between art and politics over time.
The galleries are open Tuesdays-Thursdays, 11-8 and Fridays & Saturdays, 11-4. Admission is free.
