Art, Activism & Advocacy

  • Cleveland Clinic Main Campus - Julia & Larry Pollock gallery 9500 Euclid Avenue Cleveland, OH, 44106 United States (map)

Art, Activism & Advocacy initiates a conversation about art’s changing role in our contemporary world. More and more, artists are using their artistic practice as a form of activism, turning their artwork into prominent statements of advocacy for themselves, their local communities and broader global populations. Cleveland artists Amber N. Ford, Sarah Kabot, and students photographers from the youth program Shooting Without Bullets are all turning their lens toward some of the biggest social issues facing our communities and our nation: race, immigration and the ways in which consumers receive and process news media. Bringing these works together at Cleveland Clinic allows us the opportunity to reflect inward, and to encourage an open dialogue about issues that are directly affecting patients, visitors and caregivers—both within and outside our walls.
