If there was ever a time in our country that we need activists to follow in the footsteps of the most revered REBELS, IT’S NOW!
ART IS PART OF THE RESISTANCE!
We are proud to exhibit the interpretation of six extraordinary painters and their depiction of the past and present rebels of our time. Tarana Burke, founder of the #METOO movement will be painted by artist Michael Elsasser. Jo Hay is painting Emma Gonzalez, survivor of the Parkland shooting, an advocate for changing the gun laws in our country as well as a founder of March for Our lives. Rosa Parks, civil rights activist who would not sit in the back of the bus will be painted by artist KJ Shows. Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman Hughes, activists and the faces of the Feminist Movement as well as the founders of Ms. Magazine has been painted by artist Tess Barbato. Artist Cobi Moules is a transgendered man as well as the subject of his paintings. Moules’s paintings explore his transition from female to male. Football player Colin Kaepernick who took a knee to protest police brutality of people of color has been painted by artist O’Neil Scott. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a tireless advocate for the equality of women and the first Jewish woman to be appointed as a Supreme Court Justice has been painted by artist Jo Hay. Linda Sarsour, painted by Jo Hay is an activist for the rights of Muslims and one of the original four founders of the Women’s March which ignited our country to say no to President Trump’s mysoginist and racist agenda. These are the names of the real heros. We hope you’ll join us for what will be a very important exhibition.
