Picture Social Justice and Human Rights
About the show
“Picture Social Justice and Human Rights,” which runs through June 30th, was conceived with the mission to promote a collective vision of social justice and human rights expressed in visual art.
In concert with the launch of Boston Graduate School’s new Master’s Degree in Social Justice and Human Rights, we invited artists to submit works of art to engage the viewer, promote healing within our selves and our world, and inspire action for social justice and human rights. As Freud wrote, “The first requisite of civilization is that of justice.”
A 3-person jury selected artwork from more than 350 entries submitted from newly emerging artists and long-time professionals. The artists themselves represent a range of ages, cultures, genders and sexual identities, countries of origin, subject matters, and art media. What unites all the artists, the jurors, and the Boston Graduate School is a passion for art and our collective dedication to social justice and human rights.

Fifty percent of the proceeds from the sale of the art go directly to support the new M.A. Program in Social Justice and Human Rights, including student scholarships and faculty and research support.
