While most of the world has banned capital punishment, the United States, Japan, and South Korea are the only established democracies in the world to continue executions. The posters in this exhibition show how racism, poverty, and unpopular political beliefs impact sentencing. Studies also show that at least 4% of those sentenced to death in the U.S. are innocent, yet the courts continue to condemn and kill people with poison gas, electrocution, firing squad, or lethal injection. State sanctioned murder is still murder. End the Death Penalty!

Reinventing the Américas: Construct. Erase. Repeat

This exhibition analyzes representations of the Americas, questioning the mythologies and utopian visions that proliferated after the arrival of Europeans to the continents. Featuring artistic interventions by Denilson Baniwa, an Indigenous contemporary artist from the Amazon region of Brazil, and the voices of local community groups, Reinventing the Américas counters the views of European chroniclers, illustrators, and printmakers from the sixteenth to nineteenth centuries.   All visitors should reserve an advance timed-entry ticket online

Luis Flores: Because of You, In Spite of You

Luis Flores’s largely autobiographical work functions as an account of emotions and experiences accumulated as a young man within a toxic masculine culture. Transformational events, such as getting married and becoming a father, motivated him to view the world differently. In this exhibition, Flores uses crocheted and bronzed sculptures to create a Monster Rally setup as a metaphor for parental love.   Cost: Adults  – $9, Students, Teachers, and Seniors  – $7, Members –  Free, Sundays – Pay what you…
