FROST/NIXON Opens this Friday with Accompanying Politics of War Art Exhibition
WICA will host "POW" (Politics of War), an exhibit of works by local artists (listed below), with an art reception Friday, June 8, at 6:00 pm in the lobby. This fabulous art show serves as a prelude on the opening night of Frost/Nixon, by Peter Morgan, "POW" will remain in the WICA lobby until the end of June. The art show will relate thematically to the Vietnam era and how Richard Nixon impacted politics and society at every level.
'This Was Then, That Is Now,' an assemblage by Richard Evans, is a play on the cliche "that was then, this is now," intended to serve as a reminder that "we have little choice but to keep trying to poke a hole in the cloud of war."
Participating artists are: Richard Evans, Georgia Gerber, Kirk Prindle, Dan Freeman, Maxine Junge, Bill Ruth, Pat McVay, Drew Kampion, Hank Nelson, Rob Schouten, Lee Wexler, Judith Burns and Barbara Kelly.
The free "POW" reception and art show is in conjuction with WICA's Theater Series play, Frost/Nixon, by Peter Morgan, June 8-23, 2012 at 7:30 pm, directed by Richard Evans.
