Wilsonville Festival of the Arts: This Moment on Earth
Put on by Wilsonville Arts & Culture Council, this is a juried group exhibition of visual works that raise awareness about issues facing society and the planet in 2022. Recognizing that we are at a crossroads on many fronts, WACC wish to provide a platform for visual artists to communicate, critique, educate, encourage, and embolden. Art can inspire the solutions we need for the future. This exhibition is the main feature for their revived Wilsonville Festival of Arts (WFA), which WACC has had to cancel two years in a row.

The virtual exhibition shall be accessible on their website from June 5 – July 31, 2022.
