(Berkeley, California July 10, 2007) Beginning Wednesday, July 11 and running through Saturday, August 25, the public is invited to view the “Art for Humanity”, a painting exhibition inspired by the United Nations' Millennium Development Goals, at the Addison Street Windows Gallery on 2018 Addison Street in Berkeley, CA.  The exhibition can be viewed from the sidewalk on Addison Street, and it is free and wheelchair accessible.  A sidewalk reception will be held for the public on July 12 from 6-8pm.

The Art for Humanity exhibit features artists Lorraine Bruce, Vladimir Berberov, Lucy Lewis, Nam Nguyen, Mike Powell, and T. Scott Sayre. These artists are alumni of Berkeley City College and Evelyn Glaubman’s art classes, where she has been an instructor since 1978.

Glaubman, a member of the United Nations East Bay Chapter, was inspired to present this exhibition after reading and discussing the millennium goals with her students. The United Nations' Millennium Development Goals are an ambitious plan to address some of the world's most pressing problems.

The artists felt challenged to use imagery to convey the meaning and the emotion they felt about the millennium goals to "eradicate extreme poverty and hunger; achieve universal primary education; promote gender equality and empower women; reduce child mortality; improve maternal health; combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases; ensure environmental sustainability; develop a global partnership for development".

The art work, on canvas and paper and in various painting mediums, brings the work of the United Nations to the general public in a visually accessible and dramatic fashion. Glaubman hopes that the exhibit "will mobilize people to make a personal commitment to help achieve the Millennium Goals at home and abroad."

The Addison Street Windows Gallery is a project of the Civic Arts Program of the City of Berkeley in cooperation with the Civic Arts Commission. For information about the exhibition and the Addison Street Windows Gallery please visit the Civic Arts web page http://www.ci.berkeley.ca.us/civicarts/publicart.htm or contact Mary Ann Merker, Civic Arts Coordinator at (510) 981-7533.
