Art exhibit: "Divided State of America"

“The Divided State of America” an art exhibit and discussion panel seeking to inspire constructive discussion to heal political, religious and social fractures

Our nation is divided and to many Americans, the issues that divide us –budget, health care, immigration, energy, foreign policy, race, the economy, class, religion, pollution, taxes, welfare, social security, war, sexual orientation - seem insurmountable.

"The Divided State Of America", a provocative new, larger than life, nine-piece collection of paintings by San Francisco spray paint artist, Chor Boogie, commissioned by scientist, inventor, immigrant, and entrepreneur, Dr. Nirmal Mulye, highlights the tension between the broken pieces of an ideologically fractured America.

"The Divided State Of America" made it's national debut at in Charlotte, N.C. last October, 2012, and was lauded by critics and the public alike as "groundbreaking", "powerful", "disturbing", "provocative", "impactful", "inspiring", "timely", and "controversial”. The traveling exhibit comes directly from California and is based on the original work.
