Fall 2018 Student Art Competition

Art as Social Commentary

In the fall of 2018, the Gadsden Arts Center & Museum will host two major solo exhibitions centered on art as a catalyst for conversations about social change. In response to the social ills of the world, artists Mark Messersmith and Carrie Ann Baade have created bodies of work that challenge humanity’s impact, and relationship with, the environmental, sociological, economic, and social climate. Mark Messersmith’s moody, chaotic landscapes feature crimes against the environment and indigenous cultures and evils specific to Florida and its unique ecosystems. Carrie Ann Baade creates imaginative, surrealist meta- narratives detailing her view of the apocalyptic climate the world has adopted due to religious and sexist dynamics.

In conjunction with this exhibition, students from schools (public, private, and homeschool) are invited to submit art for Art as Social Commentary Student Art Competition.
