Anger and Politics: The Temperature of Political Discourse in Contemporary America 

When: Wed., June 2, 7 p.m. 2010
After almost three weeks of taking everything in and mulling it over, British artist Fletcher Crossman, the man behind Eye Level Art’s current controversial exhibit State of Shock, will hold a panel discussion to formally talk about his latest offering. “The last few days have given me a chance to take in peoples’ responses. I think on opening night I was still in creative artist mode, and now I’m in observer mode so I can join in the conversation more objectively,” Crossman says. So far, Crossman has received mostly positive reviews from those who have seen his exhibit and one confrontation during the opening reception. For the panel, Crossman was determined to have articulate people from across the political spectrum to keep the event bipartisan. Joining him are Brian McGee, College of Charleston professor and chair of the Department of Communication; Jack Hunter, the “Southern Avenger” and City Paper columnist; Will Moredock, award-winning journalist, author of Banana Republic: A Year in the Heart of Myrtle Beach, and another CP columnist; WTMA’s Richard Todd; Mike Murphee, chairman of the Charleston Tea Party; and musician Will Gray. “This is a chance for regular people to talk and exchange views without feeling that anyone’s going to cut the mike if they say the wrong thing,” Crossman says. —Christina Janke
