"Human Rights, the Politics of War, and War" Exhibition
September 16th - December 12th
The "Human Rights, the Politics of War, and War" exhibition is the first of a two-part exhibiton series planned by the FSU Museum of Fine Arts Artists' League. The exhibition focuses on how these dark themes translate into dramatic events that emotionally charge the victims who experience shock, anger, violence, revulsion, hopelessness and despair during the immediacy of the moment when these events occur. The immediacy of these moments empowers or drains the human spirit.
The second part of the exhibiton, "Hope, Redemption, and Respect for Humanity" will be hald at the Claude Pepper Library in March 2009. Thsi exhibit will focus on teh immediacy of the moment when human rights are restored. Positive events tht restore and empower the human spirit create an impact on the individual who experiences hope for a peaceful co-existence in the world and an idlyllic respect for the human condition.
