Art today serves a different purpose than it did before the election. As our Nation’s activists, optimists, truth-tellers, and interpreters, we have a responsibility to keep the things that are important as far away and safe from the new CEO in Chief as possible. So, we're coming together and raising funds for institutions that are now in jeopardy. We're fighting hate with hope, rallying together, and speaking our minds. We're showing the world that we won’t go silently— that progress, creativity, and judiciousness still matter in this weird, new, reality-television version of America. Because if history has taught us anything, it’s that hope never loses. Join us to raise money for the institutions that need us most. We can all do our little bit to keep our beautiful country progressing towards acceptance, tolerance, and hope. Friday, January 27, starting at 7pm at The Piranha Shop, 1022 1st Avenue South, Seattle, WA 98134 100% of proceeds from the sale of work will be donated to the ACLU and Planned Parenthood.
