Art can bring joy where there would otherwise be suffering and is often the most powerful therapy in times of distress. If you’re at home or practicing social distancing voluntarily or mandated, right now could be a great chance to start a new art project or create something new. I believe art can make people feel the humanity in themselves and a connection to other human beings when they make art and share art. If we are unable to share in person at the moment, let’s share virtually.
With that being said, my team and I are giving away several “Make Art Not War” offset prints to people on Instagram who post images of their works in progress. Be sure to use hashtag #ObeyArtGiveaway2020 to enter. Please see the below for full instructions. This giveaway starts today, Tuesday, March 17th and ends on Tuesday, March 24th at 10 AM PDT. Winner(s) will be chosen and announced on our IG Stories on Tuesday, March 24th. Good luck!
1) FOLLOW @obeygiant
2) LIKE this post on Instagram
3) POST an image of your current art project that you’re working on at home or in the studio!
