We Are For Freedoms is an interdisciplinary exhibition and related public program series in partnership with For Freedoms, a national non-profit arts platform for creative civic engagement and direct action. The UMCA commissioned a series of posters from local and regional artists, asking them to respond visually to their interpretation of freedom.
The artists are: Javiera Benavente, Anne Beresford, Catherine D’Ignazio, Liz Chalfin, Andrae Green, Priya Nadkarni Green, Imo Imeh, Jonathan Jackson, kara lynch, and Ali Osborn. The original posters they create will be framed and displayed in the museum. In the spirit of the exhibition, color reproductions of the posters will be given away free to visitors.
The exhibition includes a visual history of For Freedom’s national billboard project and features related materials from the UMass Special Collections Social Justice Archive.
The University Museum of Contemporary Art (UMCA) is located on the lower of the UMass Amherst Fine Arts Center. Directions to the Fine Arts Center
