Express your voice in a regional commentary on the political environment in an unrestricted exhibition where puzzle pieces form a mosaic of political opinion.
Gallery r, Rochester Institute of Technology’s Metro Showcase and Learning Laboratory for the Arts, will host “The Political Puzzle,” a creative mixed media exhibition featuring a visual representation of political viewpoints. The exhibition runs through Oct. 11, with a reception scheduled from 7 to 9:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 19.
“What makes this exhibition timely is that the viewer becomes the message maker,” says Zerbe Sodervick, Gallery r coordinator and director of extended studies at RIT’s School of Art.
“Art and writing materials will be at the gallery throughout the exhibit. Everyone attending the reception or stopping by Gallery r any days that we are open, are encouraged to write or design a puzzle piece; the work will be added to the growing political puzzle installation on the walls.”
Gallery r, located at 775 Park Ave., is open from 2 to 6 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, and 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The gallery is also open the first Friday of the month from 7 to 9 p.m. Admission is free; donations to help support Gallery r are always accepted. For more information, call (585) 242-9470.
