Featured Community Voice: Art for a Democratic Society
Citizens in Oakland, California are casting their ballots in a unique election. Art Election is a participatory public art project by Oakland-based Art for a Democratic Society in which participants elect the "Official Art Movement of the Bay Area." In the running are six candidates: Church of the Holy Mist, Craftivism, Micromentalism, Postmodernism, Remodernism, and Tomorrowism. The following is a partial transcript of a debate between the incumbent, Postmodernism, and the two front-runners, Craftivism and Micromentalism, moderated by Art for a Democratic Society. Each candidate delivers its platform on women in the arts--making a case for why it should get the women's vote.
