The performance evening will feature artists from multiple disciplines and connects to themes in the Windows and Mirrors exhibit.  We challenge artists to consider and construct work around the social and cultural ways we conceive of war and peace. Our nation has so many conflicting sayings and ideas around war and peace, such as “prepare for peace, but arm for war” this is an evening that will unpack these idioms.

Featured Performers Include:
**Gateway Performance Productions—The MASK Center

**Paula Larke and Kim Nimoy with the EX-PAND Band

**Artists as Agents for Change      **Bryan Pattillo

**Tom Ferguson w/ drummers     **Louis Runyon    

**Phyllis Free Association Choir (Elise Witt, Joyce and Jacque and Phyllis Free)

**Neil Fried, Priscilla Smith and Guest

**Theresa Davis      **Daryl Funn      **Karen Garrabrant

**Young Nova      **Alice Lovelace     ** JagWonder      

**Ursula Kendall      **Dancing Flowers for Peace

Our goals for the evening are to bring together artists performing in different mediums and from different generations; present art that challenges the audience; and to connect artists and activists in an intergenerational event.

Our objective is to present performance art as a stimulant for social change and raising consciousness.
