Blue Mountain Center - Benefit Auction (2022)
I've donated artwork to raise funds for Blue Mountain Center, a very special sanctuary space in upstate New York that is a year-round host to many artists/activist/organizers seeking refuge, rest, and time for self-care, healing, re-energizing, and even strategizing. (As a lead up to organizing with People's Cultural Plan-I've workshopped ideas on how to address the lack of diversity in NYC's museums and also on creating a commons of art and culture with other residents during my stay! ✊👀 )
Do check-out the 3 items I donated listed and linked below. The are all from my "Our Time: Artists of Color Timelines" series. Each diptych shows a chronological fragment of the overlapping concerns and activities of BIPOC communities, groups, and individuals (1960s & 1970s)
