The Democratic Cup
Rutledge Gallery
Rutledge Building

The Democratic Cup exhibition explores one example of how the arts and various media can be used to encourage community engagement and the ideas of ‘artivism.’ During the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, potters Ayumi Horie and Nick Moen of the Bright Angle conceived of The Democratic Cup as a “slow activism” project designed to create positive social change. The project uses handmade cups to encourage person-to-person civil conversations about social and political issues over a cup of coffee. The exhibition will display the work produced by the collaborative efforts almost 50 passionate illustrators and potters across the country. It will also showcase the implementation of community conversations in Minnesota in 2018 and explore how such ideas can be applied in our own communities.
