Art brings alive for us those aspects of life that are too fragile or too complex to suffer the limitations of words. Celebrate with our contributing artists as they share their gifts and their interpretations of LibertyCon 2018 – Embracing Equity in a Global Society. Come meet and converse with the artists. Artists may choose to sell their works. Consider taking an art piece home with you. Come prepared to be enriched, enlightened, provoked, challenged.
Contributing artists include – Jamie Rodriguez, Alice Brody, Sue Connolly, Jeanne Finley, Joanne Van Genderen, Daesha Harris, Bugzdale A. Jackson, Clifford Oliver, Rita Papandrea, Beverly Skoll, Amanda Stickney, Israel Tsvaygenbaum, Richard Ham, Oliver Peters
