Here we stand at the intersection of art and politics, surrounded by challenges of injustice, inequities, neglect, movements, protest, and so much more. We take a stand on issues that we feel passionate about. When enough is enough, and the matter needs to be given a voice. Art recounts our past stories and allows us to look back and understand how our society evolved over time. And essentially, it is a way to know and understand ourselves better as a culture. STAND is an example of the broad range of issues that are happening in this extraordinary time.
