SOS Art 2009 at the Art Academy of Cincinnati

Now in its seventh year, SOS ART 2009 presents for 10 days an art show and event of sociopolitical expressions for peace and justice.

More than 200 Cincinnati visual artists, literary artists, musicians, performers and school children will participate in this year’s SOS ART event at the Art Academy of Cincinnati, from May 29th to June 7th, 2009.

Organizer and founder, Saad Ghosn of the University of Cincinnati, has
coordinated the art event of paintings, sculptures, photographs, videos, installations, poetry readings, movies, music, performances and discussions on current issues of peace and justice.

The event is a kaleidoscopic community view on the sociopolitical world. Works by local artists make powerful and diverse statements in support of peace and justice locally, nationally and worldwide.

The opening night, which includes an artists’ talk and reception, is Friday, May 29 from 6pm to midnight. Saturday programming for both weekends includes events from 7pm to 10pm. Sunday events are from 3pm to 6pm with a closing reception on the final Sunday, June 7th.

The visual art may also be seen Monday to Thursday from 9am to 6pm, Friday and Saturday from 9am to midnight and Sunday from noon to 6 pm, May 30 to June 7. The entire program is free and open to the public.
