About #ArtistMarch :
We are organizing a worldwide ARTIST MARCH on June 14 and would love your support!
SIGNIFICANCE OF DATE:
Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the American flag – a work of art and a symbol of vigilance, perseverance, freedom and justice. June 14 also happens to be 45’s birthday. What better way to celebrate that day, than with the “gift” of protest art!
The current political climate has awoken an irrepressible need in me and other artists/makers to take action. Inspired by the “Bread and Puppet” theater, I’ve been deploying my own “Props for Protest”. They’ve received a significant amount of local, national and international press. I’ve also been encouraged by the multitude of artists around the globe making their voices heard.
Historically artists have led the way for social change. We have the tools to inspire others and create the visuals of propaganda. The creative community is vast, diverse and intersectional by nature, representing every background, gender, religious belief, sexual orientation, ethnicity, economic status and age. There are so many things we can use art to fight for – including health care,
immigration, minority rights, freedom of the press, freedom of speech, net neutrality and environmental protection. We can also use art to fight for the arts, as it has been announced that NEA funding will be cut.
While many individual artists, galleries and institutions are addressing these issues within the walls of the art world, I believe it’s time for us to take it out to the streets. If we stand together, who knows what our creativity can accomplish! I believe in the power of Art!!!
WHO WILL BE INVOLVED:
Painters, sculptors, photographers, street artists, designers, digital artists, curators, collectors, galleries, critics, museums, colleges, writers, poets, playwrights, musicians, dancers, performers, singers, composers, filmmakers and more. While artists will lead the way, the Artist March will be all-inclusive.
