United Arts Council

June First Friday: The Walls We Build

Join United Arts Council for our June First Friday Exhibit and Reception

When: June 1, 6-8 pm

Where: United Arts Council, 410 Glenwood Ave., Suite 170, Raleigh. Please note that although the address is Glenwood Ave, the entrance and parking lot are on Tucker Street, which crosses Glenwood Avenue. 

About the Exhibit: The Walls We Build is the inaugural theme for the artist UNITED project to ask and explore “how people treat each other.” Walls, both physical and metaphorical, exist throughout the world. They have an application of separating people and places. As such, the question “how people treat each other” bares the deeper consideration of why humans desire to split and divide themselves. Highly political and personal in its foundation, UNITED states “Our strength as citizens and as artists arises from our ability to question and debate issues, contradictions and ironies that confront us.”
