Recommended by Katie Kurtz

In her mixed-media solo show, Holly Ballard Martz tackles the hot-button issues of gun violence, women’s reproductive rights, and racism. And even in our current climate, Martz manages to take these issues on without being bombastic. Tugging a frayed thread at the notion of “the fabric of our nation,” Martz deconstructs the American flag in various ways: bleached of all color, embellished with shredded dollar bills, and stuffed in a test tube. (The last is appropriately called Procedural Error Results in Flawed Experiment.) While there, snap a selfie in front of Dangers of Nostalgia in Wallpaper Form (in utero), tag the artist on Instagram @HBallardMartz, and she'll donate $5 to Planned Parenthood.
