MEET THE ARTISTS
We are a movement of artists from the Los Angeles South Bay area who share the themes of hope, unity, inspiration, solidarity and equality. As well as a goal to help create change through art.
When our local businesses were boarded up after the death of George Floyd, it was a reaction to the emotional protests that flared into looting and violence. Boarding businesses was a display of anxiety and fear that mirrored the intense anger that overflowed from people of all color who were awakening to the 400 year nightmare of oppression.
The boards soon came down as anxieties and anger began to transform with understanding, empathy and positive action.
These boards now represent a turning point. A moment in time that must be marked, documented and claimed as a milestone. It is our intention to transform these pieces of wood, that were stood up as a defense, into works of art that stand in offense to the systemic inequalities that have plagued our country and our people for far too long.
Each board will become part of the larger story, interpreted by artists who will share their ideas and their story in the process. In return, we ask that you support the movement with donations to the following nonprofits that are making an impact right here in Los Angeles.
You can also bid on these pieces in the Solidarity Art Auction to be held online in early September. So follow or like our social pages to get the updates.
