Art & Social Justice

Justseeds Artists' Cooperative
Justseeds Artists' Cooperative is a decentralized community of artists who have banded together to both sell their work online in a central location and to collaborate with and support each other and social movements. The website is not just a place to shop, but also a destination to find out about current events in radical art and culture. The blog covers political printmaking, socially engaged street art, and culture related to social movements.

Graphic Witness
This website is dedicated to social commentary through graphic imagery by artists working from the turn of the 20th Century to the present, with related bibliographic and biographic data.

Art and Social Issues in American Culture
This website is intended to promote dialogue and learning about art concerned with social commentary. It utilizes works of art from the Columbus Museum of Art.

The Beehive Design Collective
The work of the Beehive Collective has three major facets: the Hive is appreciated internationally for its educational graphics campaigns, at a regional level for its stone mosaic murals and apprentice program, and locally for its dedication to the revitalization of the old Machias Valley Grange Hall, a landmark building in our small, rural Maine town.

Social Justice Printmaking
A gallery of work by artist Alex Huttinger focusing on issues of social justice and human rights. A self-taught relief printmaker, Huttinger’s work has centered on the accessibility and teaching capabilities of art with an interest in Artes Populares - art of the people.

Another Limited Rebellion
A website founded by artist Noah Scalin in 2001. Inspired by the enduring legacy of punk rock activism, Another Limited Rebellion (ALR) has been committed to the Triple Bottom Line (people, planet & profit) approach to business since its conception.

No Caption Needed
Website for the book No Caption Needed by Robert Hariman and John Louis Lucaites. The authors describe the book as “arguing against the conventional belief that visual images short-circuit rational deliberation and radical critique.” The book seeks to connect photojournalism to public life.
