Our-Topia: Artists Create the Future

September 5 – December 31, 2019

at the Good Arts Gallery: Cherry Street Coffee House Mezzanine Level

Ten artists envision a better world through multiple media, creating blueprints for a hopeful tomorrow.

Face it, things are bleak. Climate change, police brutality, gun violence, inequality, blatant racism, authoritarian populism threatening our democracy…the list just seems to go on and on. It’s difficult not to feel discouraged and fearful. Outrage and fear are courted by the media and amplified in the echo chambers of social media.

Humanity badly needs a path forward at this juncture. Artists have the creative chops, and with it a sacred responsibility to envision a different future. Just imagine if our media, film, literature and art offered blueprints for hopeful and bright futures. Instead of reinforcing immobilizing fear, they could inspire positive action.

That is the theme of this show, OUR-TOPIA, ARTISTS CREATE THE FUTURE. 10 artists share their visions of the world they would like to see.

Come and be inspired… and perhaps you too can start envisioning a brighter tomorrow.

Opening night is during the Pioneer Square Art Walk

Thursday September 5th, 5:30-7:30.

The show will be on view through December 31.

Hours after opening night: Weekdays: 6:30AM TO 6:00PM, Weekends: 8:00AM TO 5:00PM
