SOS ART, founded in 2003, began as both an art exhibit and an art festival with related events and publications concerning issues of peace and justice by Greater Cincinnati Artists. The annual art event grew to include, in addition to the works of established local artists, artwork of school children; also to engage children through classroom visits and workshops.
For information about the annual SOS ART Exhibition and Event, check out this interview with Fresh Air on WVXU.
The SOS ART Youth art exhibit organized by SOS ART is devoted entirely to the artistic voice of our children and youth for Peace and Justice. In past SOS ART editions, their voice was part of the larger SOS ART exhibits catered primarily to adult artists. It was felt that it would be good and advantageous to provide them their own space and venue for expression and thus facilitate their interactions, collaboration, and growth.
