When City Lights Gallery curators presents a theme, they like to leave it broad enough for artists to interpret it in vastly different ways. The new show is called Make Art Not War, and 50 artists have each come up with their own take on what that means to them personally. The goal of the exhibit is to make visitors wonder why man has not yet learned to manage aggression, despite advances in science, culture and technology. It opens this Friday night with a reception at which many of the contributing artists will be on hand to discuss.
