In the era of Trump, artists everywhere are responding to the toxic political climate, the rise of hate groups, the dismantling of environmental protections, and the possibility of war. Racism, Misogyny, and Homophobia are being normalized by people in power. The work might express outrage and defiance, or employ humor. The art might celebrate individuals working to restore social justice, peace, and environmental stewardship.

The show is hosted by the California College of the Arts Illustration Program and the CCA Alumni Association.
