The limited-edition bandana I designed for Artists Band Together is now back in stock (while supplies last)! 100% of proceeds will go to voter-registration organizations Rise, Mijente & Woke Vote. You can check out my work and the 14 others by a group of world-renowned artists: Jenny Holzer, Victoria Cassinova, Juliana Huxtable, Alex Israel, Merritt Johnson, Christine Sun Kim, Barbara Kruger, Marilyn Minter, Christina Quarles, Umar Rashid, Xavier Schipani, Ririkrit Tiravanija, Luchita Hurtado, and Hank Willis Thomas, available here through eBay for Charity.
I believe in the Artists Band Together project because I think we all can make the country better, and that art and the humanitarian spirit of artists can play a valuable role in doing so. This project embraces the principles of democracy, by making art accessible through the bandanas while also providing support to the grassroots voting initiatives from the organizations benefitting from the profits – Rise, Mijente, and Woke Vote. The caliber of artists involved is inspiring, and I believe in the story behind each work of art. I think that everyone from collectors to activists will be embracing these as collectable symbols of democracy at this historic moment. There’s only 35 days left until Election Day, so let’s band together to get out the vote! Thanks for caring. -Shepard
