Artists Sheila Halligan-Waltz and Eike Waltz test free speech in a provocative tandem art exhibition in a vast rented space: The Mill Gallery, 131 Front St., Santa Cruz

Oct 3-Nov 3, 2008…timed to precede the elections.

Artists Sheila Halligan-Waltz and Eike Waltz 'wear their opinions on their sleeves' in an exhibition which the two have invested a year and a small fortune to produce, without profit in mind, in order to express their growing outrage at democracy they consider betrayed by the Bush Administration.

OUT is an exhibition of large-scale oil on canvas paintings of documented or symbolic scenes from the Bush administration by Sheila Halligan-Waltz, and provocative Sculpitti (three-dimensional graffiti: name coined by the artist) sculpture by Eike Waltz.

For the month preceding the November 4 elections, the couple rented the cavernous Mill Gallery in Santa Cruz to mount the exhibition which they will staff from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily with performances and events every Friday and Saturday (Event schedule attached)—all to engage people in thinking about the cost of the American Dream as proscribed and "defended" by the Bush Administration.
