Art as activism

A handful of artists with ties to Westchester are among the participants in “Activism in Art: Art Changes Things,” which opens Feb. 19 at Rockland Center for the Arts.

Vera Aronow, Michael Fischerkeller, Simone Kestelman, Lisa Levart, Francesco Mastalia, Wilfredo Morel, Jessica Putnam-Phillips, Loren Schwerd and Marisa Silverstein will be exhibiting works in a variety of mediums in the West Nyack center through April 23.

As advance materials state, the exhibition “looks at art that transcends boundaries. This exhibit operates as an empowering agent of change, presenting work that challenges notions of class. This work is meant to start conversations and break down stereotypes.”

The center is at 27 S. Greenbush Road.
