Black & Blue: Art about Policing, Violence and Resistance
Project NIA believes strongly in the value and importance of creative resistance. We use art (in its various forms) to communicate with a broad array of individuals about the injustice of the prison industrial complex.
To that end, we invited artists (youth & adults) to contribute prints and posters relating to policing, violence, and resistance. We are thrilled to be able to exhibit art created by Sarah Atlas, students from Bowen High School, Billy Dee, Eric Garcia, Leigh Klonsky, LuchArte, Eva Nagao, Mauricio Pineda, Ariel Springfield and Stephanie Weiner.
The exhibition was open from March 19th until March 28th at the Pop-up Just Arts Space located at 729 S. Maxwell St. in Chicago, Illinois.
NOTE: THE IMAGE LOCATED AT THE TOP OF THE SITE IS AN ARTWORK MADE BY BILLY DEE ON THE DANZIGER BRIDGE SHOOTINGS.
