JFK3, JFK4, and JFK6, have been chosen for the “Painting in the World: Reflections on Politics, Violence, and Reconciliation” at the Northern Arizona University Art Museum / by Monique Crine

Curated by Dr. George V. Speer, Director of the NAU Art Museum, “Painting in the World: Reflections on Politics, Violence, and Reconciliation” opens September 18 and closes November 22. The NAU Art Museum believes that the global community faces a turning point today in which economic, environmental, and ethnic pressures threaten the integrity of whole societies.  The Arab Spring, wars arising from religious extremism and, conversely, the efforts of many nations to maintain stable, consensual societies are among the themes they hope to address in this exhibition.
