About Central Features

Central Features Contemporary Art promotes and supports the value of art-making, with a featured emphasis on the contemporary artist's role in environmental stewardship and social progress. Borrowing from commercial and non-commercial practices, Central Features asks: How might art translate and transform the human condition in a relevant, discernible, and local context?
