Standing up to power. Artists’ works focus on social injustice.

Renee Leverty’s American flag made of wood with a gash down the middle abd Tom Burhman’s North Carolina flag cut and attached to part of the rainbow flag are part of the exhibition, “Truth to Power” at Durham’s Pleiades Arts Inc. through Aug. 6, which demonstrates how the visual arts can not only represent the beauty of flowers, but can also stand up to social injustice.
