LIVE AND VIRTUAL EXHIBIT:
Democracy and the Arts: Rejoice the Vote

Rejoice the Vote, is a local organization that also works statewide. As John Lewis taught us “The vote is precious. It is almost sacred. It is the most powerful non-violent tool we have in a democracy.”

This exhibit features artwork from the Rejoice the Vote Art Contest, which was created to engage artists and the public around voting rights and history. Rejoice the Vote asked for original designs that inspired people, especially young people, to vote and highlight activists and heros (historical or contemporary) who fought or continue to fight for voting rights. like Representative John C. Lewis (1940-2020). The majority of the pieces are by young people from Tompkins County and include drawings from Lehman Alternative School high school students. Founder Jeff Furman says, "This exhibit couldn’t be more timely as we witness a resurgence of voter suppression laws in more than 40 states."

The Community Arts Partnership thanks our generous year-round CAP ArtSpace sponsor, the Tompkins Trust Company.
