While talking about arranging the exhibition one of the artists said, “The role of artists in the society is monumental. Truly there are no alternatives to practicing art when it comes to illuminating the social psyche. The social psyche comprises of manifold vantage points, needs, wants, and attention span that may sum up to an impenetrable wall of nourishes that only art can break through. So artists have to try to be very clear in articulating their purpose and sort of 'ride' their art where both expression and communication may manifest ideas in various cogitable forms. This art exhibition is an attempt at that.”
