This current issue is my second as Art Editor for Hot Metal Bridge. I was overwhelmed by the quality and diversity of the works as well as the unique ways artists approached (or did not approach) the concept of social justice. The diverse selected works include photography, India inks, lithographs, drawings, and paintings. There is no overwhelming narrative to the works displayed, instead they act much like written submissions, as individual expressions to address visually the human experience of being in the world.
