The Artists:
To Be Heard is a 4-week group fine art exhibition showcased in the Old Court House Arts Center located in Woodstock, IL. This exhibition focuses on controversial artwork and the power artists have to highlight issues and social causes.

This exhibition is an exercise in freedom of speech. The artwork in this exhibition takes a strong moral stance that either depicts intensely personal experiences or reflects and comments on society at large. 

Some of the work in this exhibition has been censored, or, by nature of the subject matter would be considered illegal in some countries. Art has the power to evoke strong opinions and challenge the viewer to think about a social issues in a new way - we hope you come, not necessarily to agree with everything you see, but to at understand and acknowledge different points of view.
