Half of the exhibit, which features works by 40 artists from across the U.S. reflecting upon and transforming volumes of white supremacist propaganda into art, is also on display in the Jessie Wilber Gallery at Bozeman's Emerson Cultural Center through Dec. 15.
The impetus for the "Speaking Volumes: Transforming Hate" exhibit came from the Montana Human Rights Network that acquired a large quantity of white supremacist books from a defector. The books were used as a catalyst for change through collaboration with curators at the Holter Museum of Art in Helena. The Holter Museum issued a national call to artists to participate in the exhibition to create art from the hate books and turn them to constructive, positive use.
The opening reception at MSU's Copeland Gallery will be held from 7-9 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 3. The gallery is located in Haynes Hall, across 11th Ave. from the MSU Duck Pond.
