April will be an exciting month at Riverwest’s Jazz Gallery Center for the Arts!

Tuesday, April 22 will be the opening reception of RAISE YOUR VOICE, a regional exhibition of two-dimensional works of art of social and political significance. The show was inspired by the Wisconsin protests of 2011, and RAA seeks to be a conduit
for the voices of artists who have created work about social justice issues. The opening will recreate the atmosphere in the Madison capitol during the protests. Guests can sing along with Madison’s renowned SOLIDARITY SINGERS. Ian’s Pizza will be served. Opening Reception Hours: 6-9PM. RAISE YOUR VOICE exhibit will run April 22-May 17.
