As artists, our works often have political overtones, sometimes our images become a social record or even
a subconscious perception of the forces about us.
'Under the Radar' will explore the possibilities of social
 and political activism, personal reaction
and the notion of 'protest' art.
 So come join us in exercising our democratic right
to express, protest, revolutionize and liberate!

to provide support for
