Frontline Arts and Frontline Paper are inviting artists nationwide to submit work for an upcoming group show: "The War on the World". The curators of the exhibition “The War On The World” extend to you an invitation to submit up to three works for consideration to hang in the Frontline Arts Gallery throughout November, 2019. “The War On The World” confronts the reality that the leading polluter of our planet is the U.S. military. Given the precarious state of the earth, with our country hostage to mindless greed and racism, fear and hate, the curators hope to construct a vivid picture of where we are, where we could be going and what we can do about it. Our thoughts are to begin immediately and then to expand this exhibit into later next year. In advance of the 2020 elections, we wish to be seen, maybe heard, perhaps inspire. Does it matter?

For directions to and information about Morristown National Historic Park, visit https://www.nps.gov/morr/index.htm. Their debate today will be as personal as it is political. John Marshall was the fourth Chief Justice of the United States, but the first to establish the judiciary as an equal branch of the federal government. Thomas Jefferson was the third President of the United States, but the first to preside during and after a change of power from one political party to another political party on a national scale. Their opposing views on the authority of the judiciary and its role in our government formed the groundwork of how the judicial, legislative, and executive work together—and sometimes at odds with each other—to this day.
