An Artist’s Response to Human Rights

Friday, December 6 - Wednesday, December 18, 2013
Orange Hall Gallery (MDTN) and Mindy Ross Gallery, Kaplan Hall (NBG)

Receptions will be held on Sunday, December 8 from 1 to 4pm at Orange Hall Gallery (MDTN) and on Tuesday, December 17 from 6 to 8pm at Mindy Ross Gallery, Kaplan Hall (NBG)

The 65th anniversary of the adoption by the United Nations General Assembly of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is being celebrated by the Orange County Human Rights Commission with one exhibit in two sites.  Entitled An Artist’s Response to Human Rights, the show features works depicting topics related to the 30 Articles of the Universal Declaration. All of the works have been created by juniors and seniors of high schools in Orange County and are displayed in Orange Hall Gallery on the Middletown campus and Mindy Ross Gallery on the Newburgh campus of Orange County Community College, December 6 through 18, 2013.

This year the exhibit is comprised of both visual and literary pieces. The works are intense as they connect the viewers to the concepts through the artists’ and writers’ interpretations of the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Emily Landsman, piano"I am so pleased that the Orange County Human Rights Commission in collaboration with SUNY Orange and the Orange County Arts Council will for the third year provide a platform for students to express themselves through their literary and visual work while enhancing their appreciation of human rights," states Commission Chair Fred Cook. The Orange County Human Rights Commission was established in 1970 to foster mutual respect and understanding among all racial, religious, and nationality groups in the County.

Receptions at the two locations will be held Sunday, December 8 from 1 to 4pm in Middletown and Tuesday, December 17 (this is a date change after the original Dec. 10 reception was rescheduled to Dec. 17 due to inclement weather) from 6 to 8pm in Newburgh. These events and exhibit are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are 9am to 8pm Monday through Thursday and 9am to 6pm on Friday in Orange Hall Gallery, and 9am to 4pm Monday through Friday in Mindy Ross Gallery.  During the reception in Middletown, Valley Central High School Sophomore Emily Landsman will play piano.
