THE EXHIBITION

This exhibition encourages the artist to "get on their soapbox" and speak to the issues that impact and influence them. The aim of Soapbox is to present a visual discussion on a broad range of topics, including politics, medicine, morality, religion, societal issues, and causes. Soapbox will assemble a chorus of voices and viewpoints in Gallery I & II from September 30 - November 11, 2016.
