Four of John's paintings are included in New York City's ACA Galleries newest exhibit: Social Art In America: Then and Now.
"It is sometimes said that those who are creative in one field are also creative in another, and such is the
case with John Mellencamp. Known primarily for his award-winning music, whose themes of working-
class struggles and rural hardship are right in line with Social Realist art, Mellencamp is also a serious
painter tackling serious themes. Uniting the Modernist and Realist traditions, Mellencampís canvases
bristle with the anger and rage just under the shiny American veneer. "
The exhibit runs May 6 through June 27, 2014.
