After the 2017 election, FFOYA House issued a call for protest art -- art "that is anti-hate, that yearns for peace, that wants to spark a revolution and that embraces diversity. " The Degenerate Art Show took its name from a term used by the Nazi regime in Germany to describe modern art that ran afoul of the ideals of National Socialism. Such art was banned because it was seen as un-German, Jewish or Communist in nature. Artists identified as degenerates were sanctioned, and their art was publicly ridiculed and destroyed.
In recognition of the power of innovative artistic vision as a vehicle and voice for social change and evolution, FFOYA House hosted a show in December and January that honored the most patriotic American value, dissent. The show opened along with a poetry reading in conjunction with the BG Gallery Hop on Dec. 2.
Artists who participated in the show were: Lykaia Quinn, Maggie Jo Hilliard, Chloe Lee, Annie Smith, Ariana Michaela, Syren the Commander, Annie Erskine, Emily Lobb Hendricksen, Wolfchop Kessler, Graham McKillip, Alayna Milby and Molly Claiborne
