THE ONE HOUSE PROJECT
220 artists stand up for tolerance, inclusion and unity
A project of the ArtWatch collective
Led by Ellyn Weiss and Jackie Hoysted
Exhibition supported by the Touchstone Foundation for the Arts


Over 220 DC area artists have come together to demonstrate the power of visual communication to support true democratic values of tolerance, inclusion and openness and to resist efforts to divide us by race, gender, sexual preference, class or region. The vision of One House is for a country where we stand together.  Each artist contributed a 12” square panel dedicated to an ancestor who came to this country -  voluntarily or involuntary - or was here before the arrival of the Europeans. A structure erected in the Touchstone Gallery will be covered entirely by those panels, representing the remarkable range of diverse humanity who have combined to make the strength of America.
