The concept for this exhibition was developed by artist and juror Jan Brown Checco. “Traditions: The Blessing & The Curse” looks at the positive and negative consequences of traditions. How have customs, ways of life, mores impacted our lives? What is the legacy of your individual ethnic, social or racial backgrounds?
