This is the first Rust Belt Biennial, and will feature a series of lectures, gallery talks, and panel discussions to celebrate and showcase artists native to Pennsylvania and the Rust Belt region.
Andrew Moore is quoted in the show's press release stating: "...I was once again reaffirmed in my belief that the stories of the Rust Belt continue to be of singular importance for the greater trajectory of America today."
The Biennial is currently on display at the Sordoni Art Gallery at Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre, PA.
Opening reception is to be held September 7th at 6 p.m.
