"ART OF POLITICS" Art Show Promoting artistic opinions on politics
INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Ever since the American Revolution, American artists have been expressing their opinions on political matters through their artwork. One example is the cartoons of Thomas Nast. His work published in Harper’s Weekly helped bring to light the corruption of New York’s Tammany Hall, and gave us the Democrat’s donkey and the Republican’s elephant, as well as the modern image of Santa Claus.
This tradition continues today in the work of local artists who will be exhibiting their works in a politically themed art show at Deano's Vino Restaurant in Historic Fountain Square. The Libertarian Party of Marion County is sponsoring this show and sale.
ART SALE OPENING: Friday, April 4, 5:00-11:00 PM
HAPPY HOUR: 5:00-6:30 PM
Deano's Vino Restaurant & Wine Bar in Historic Fountain Square.
1112 S. Shelby Street, Indianapolis, IN 46203
