Smile Politely

The Politics of Art

Wind Water and Light, an artisans gallery, opens an exhibit dubbed The Real Politik — just in time for February’s political rumble, Super Tuesday, on Feb. 5. A relatively new kid on the block in downtown Champaign, Wind Water and Light opens the month-long exhibit today featuring two-dimensional and three-dimensional works from local artists reflecting hot button issues in the country and the current political landscape. Displaying artists include Billy Morrow Jackson, Siti Mariah Jackson, Hyon Joo Kim, Brian Sullivan, Rosalind Famian Weinberg and Cindy Westfall. If the tight races and politicos trading barbs isn’t enough to get you into the voting mood — perhaps this exhibit will be the inspiration you need to the primaries. Go democracy!

Wind Water and Light is located at 10 E. Main St. The Real Politik closes on Feb. 29.
