Zeitgeist Atrium Gallery – Rights of the Child by Moira Villiar
Exhibit description: The USA is the only country in the United Nations that hasn’t ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. What exactly does this mean for our children’s rights? Through paintings and digitally designed posters, artist Moira Villiard explores the essence of childhood and children’s rights in modern times. Her work also aims to call attention to individual cognitive dissonance – “doublethink” that occurs when people hold two contradictory beliefs about a particular issue or situation.

Zeitgeist Arts Cafe Gallery – For the Love of Trees by Sue Rauschenfels
Artist Exhibit Statement: Survival of human beings is oxygen and is made available by trees. We have all heard the science as to why trees are life. But beyond that, trees have the power to impact people positively socially and mentally. Trees calm and rejuvenate our senses and refresh our souls in healing ways. Often as individuals, we seek to surround ourselves with trees to recharge and center ourselves. We travel in groups to forests and parks to socialize, connect, and refresh our relationships. Human connection with trees is vital to sustaining life and creating supportive healthy human interaction.
