The Future of Nations

As part of its mission to create a forum for civic engagement through the arts, 18th Street Arts Center proudly presents “The Future of Nations,” their 2008 season of exhibitions dedicated to examining the issues related to the 2008 presidential campaign. While doubling as a legal polling place throughout 2008, 18th Street is the only arts center in southern California devoting an entire season to artists who are addressing issues surrounding the election.
