NJ United States + Google Map
$10

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? Humanity is part of the Eco-system. As artists, we know something of humanity. So why not.

"That's what I love about this album," said Kevin Richardson. "We were able to bring all of our influences and styles into one coherent piece of work. These songs are a great representation of who we are as individuals and who we are as a group. It's our DNA. We're really proud of that."
