WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. - Feb. 18, 2020 - PRLog -- Emerging visual artist Jacob Clayton is thrilled to represent the transgender art community with his Andy Warhol-inspired Marilyn at Access and Opportunity, Diversity and Inclusion. The large mixed-media piece takes you from female to male and back to female again, without you even knowing it, all through one iconic image.

This juried exhibition features works that define what it means to be a good citizen in a global context, a person appreciative of all cultures and committed to fairness with respect and equality for all.

Works from over 30 artists are on view until Mar 13, 2020 at Monmouth University Pollak Gallery, 400 Cedar Avenue, West Long Branch, NJ. View more details about Access and Opportunity, Diversity and Inclusion.
