THE GENESIS:

This exhibition was conceived in conversation between Kristen and Kate a few days after the U.S. Presidential Election. With the intention of providing a reason, space, and context for artists to respond to the current circumstance, they agreed to set a show in motion, and allow the call to take on a life of its own. Word spread between artists and within a short time, the number of participants rose from 50 to 150. The current list of participating artists is included below.

X
THE SHOUT OUT:

“If you choose to make a work that addresses things internal, or external, or some state in-between, that is up to you. Make what you need to make in whatever form, and at whatever pitch you choose.”

(Excerpt from the call to participate.)

X

If we stop to comprehend the “unrealistic” endeavors that we pursue, we would never do them. This show has been a leap of faith and a truly collaborative endeavor.

X

Lauren Barnes and Shanekia McIntosh are organizing the opening day of performances, talks, and events. Carrie Schneider is managing new media submissions. Courtney Childress, Sheree Hovespain, Eleanor King, Gina Magid, Carleen Sheehan, Elise Siegel, and Ana Wolovick are providing drop-off locations for participating artists. Lilah Friedland is managing the collection of works in collaboration with our staff. Many participating artists have personally shipped their work to the gallery and offered their time and resources.

A portion of all sales will be donated to the local factions of

Planned Parenthood and Black Lives Matter.

“…The story of generations of people
who felt the lash of bondage,
the shame of servitude, the sting of segregation,
but who kept on striving and hoping
and doing what needed to be done
so that today I wake up every morning in a house
that was built by slaves,” she said.
“And I watched my daughters,
two beautiful,
intelligent,
black young women,
playing with their dogs
on the White House lawn.
And because of Hillary Clinton,
my daughters and all our sons and daughters
now take for granted that a woman
can be president of the United States.”

Yes, and me too!
That why it was so momentous last night.
I was stunned by its testament.
TWO hours and 18 minutes after the polls closed
– I had left the Obama 2012 headquarters
for the last time…waiting for
the trajectory of
our future.
basic 5 point blue star beveled
And, last night, Americans
and
Minnesotans
welcomed
more people to
the table.
basic 5 point blue star beveled
MINNESOTANS
DEFEATED
 TWO
AMENDMENTS
TO OUR
STATE CONSTITUTION:
1.) MARRIAGE AMENDMENT-
MARRIAGE ONLY BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN
MINNESOTANS VOTED NO!
LOVE IS LOVE!
2.) VOTER RESTRICTION
MINNESOTANS WOULD HAVE TO OBTAIN
A GOVERNMENT VALIDATED
PHOTO ID
TO  VOTE
MINNESOTANS VOTED NO!
NO ONE WILL BE DISENFRANCHISED!
basic 5 point blue star beveled
Our flag
unfurled a wider
majesty of greater grandeur
and
more
golden fields.
Excellent.
Red
White
Brown
Blue
Yellow
Black
Purple
Polka-dot
All shapes
A wide arc,
a  luminous
rainbow,
embracing
quiet swaths
of
nuance
and
subtlety.
GRACE.
basic 5 point blue star beveled
HUMANITY IS LOVE/LOVE IS HUMANITY
THE VALUE OF HUMANITY
CANNOT BE MEASURED
ON A LEDGER.
HUMANITY YEARNS
FOR THE
FREEDOM
OF
TRUTH’S EXPRESSION.
basic 5 point blue star beveled
The content of one’s character rose.
Once again integrity, perseverance, humanity prevails.
GRACE.
basic 5 point blue star beveled
As one elderly woman,
living in the suburbs,
told me on the phone last night
while I was making the last rushed calls
from St. Paul’s
Obama/Biden headquarters:
Yes,
I voted for my hero,
OUR
President Barack Obama!
basic 5 point blue star beveled
Another call to an elderly voter in response
to the MARRIAGE AMENDMENT stated:
” No one chooses who they will be
when they are born.
They are born who they are meant to be!
My husband and I would want anyone
who loves another to be able to watch over
their loved one
and
marry them if they choose to!
Of course, we decided we will
VOTE NO
to the marriage amendment.
Everyone deserves to live their life with their beloved.”

President Barack Obama wins second term

BRAVO!

GOD BLESS

ALL

AMERICA!

Today is a re-definition

 of

radiance,

hope,

GRACE,

telling the truth,

and

dreams

do

come

true.
