THE NEW NORMALCY focuses on the post 9-11 reality of endless war, terror, and repression.
On October 19th, 2001, former Halliburton CEO and now current sitting Vice President, Dick Cheney, christened a new term. Describing the curtailment of civil rights taken for granted by American citizens as the new normalcy, Mr. Cheney was notifying Americans that constant surveillance, arrest without charge, secret trials and military tribunals, were the order of the day. Moreover, according to Cheney, "Many of the steps we have now been forced to take will become permanent in American life." By naming this exhibition The New Normalcy, Carlotta's Passion Fine Art and the artists in the exhibit remind Mr. Cheney and other members of the Bush administration that the only things permanent in American life are our cherished freedoms and constitutional rights as United States citizens - that and our promise of liberty and justice for all.
THE NEW NORMALCY opens with an Artist's Reception on Saturday, February 25th, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
