Crossing Arts Alliance Presents Its Newest Exhibition

Crossing Arts Alliance in downtown Brainerd has announced that its newest exhibition of artwork will be open to the public starting tomorrow.

’84, the newest exhibition that will extend through August 29th, is artist Tony Powers’ reaction to the social and political climate of 2020. Created during the COVID-19 quarantine, pieces respond to an array of current events surrounding this time in history.

According to Powers, the show title ’84 is a nod to Orwell’s 1949 novel, a prophecy of authoritarian social practice, psychological manipulation, and class struggle and an acknowledgement to parallels seen in today’s world.

Due to COVID-19 and regulations for large group gatherings, Crossing Arts Alliance will not be holding a public reception for this exhibition, but the public is invited to visit the gallery during regular business hours to view the artwork. In addition, a gallery tour video will be posted on their website and social media pages for those that unable to view the exhibition in person.
