Current Projects

Justice For Some?  - June 21, 2013, Art Access Gallery

Human rights violations occur globally in all forms and factions.  Locally we experience many forms of discrimination.  Awareness and knowledge are the first steps in bringing about social change.  Brolly Arts is working with a number of organizations and artists to create and present Justice For Some?.  This project is a multi-disciplinary event that explores the notion of equality and discrimination.  Join us at Art Access for Gallery Stroll as we address these issues through  dance, visual and digital exhibitions and the drum bus throughout the evening.

Plastique  2013

Plastique brings to light the wonderful horrible nature of plastic.  It is resilient and it lasts.  That’s the beauty and the destructive nature of plastic particularly single use plastic such as plastic bags.  Plastique is a multi-disciplinary project with outreach components to utilize high quality art to engage our community and increase awareness around this vital environmental issue of plastic, its use, misuse and lasting impact.  Plastique will be comprised of many parts such as art education, performance, exhibits, installations, and outreach. 

 Both visual and performing artists will work amongst themselves and with community groups to fully realize the performance and visual aspects of Plastique.  In this way, we increase awareness of an important environmental issue, we engage our community and, although this addresses a real environmental problem, art is the central theme.  Brolly Arts has extensive experience and positive outcomes for work such as this.  Our 2009 and 2010 H2O projects were awarded a 2010 NEA Access to Artistic Excellence award for our work in art, environmental issues and community outreach and engagement.  Plastique, by design, will be a replicable model.  Once this project premieres, it can be replicated in other areas and communities.

Currently Brolly Arts offers fiscal sponsorship and access to liability insurance for artists and artist groups.  Plans are in the work to expand these services.
