A limited supply of “Vote for Change” T-Shirts by the artist will be available for purchase during the event; proceeds benefit AOC. Please wear a face covering and observe social distancing. We are closely following the situation with COVID-19 via the CDC and SF Department of Public Health and will share any updates on our website, newsletter, and social media channels.
We are living in an unprecedented time. A time in which it is up to us to craft the future we want to see. I believe that art has the power to change the world and my passion is to make art that matters. With the election drawing near it’s imperative we get involved, so I invite you to join me on IG Live to fundraise for AOC. I know with everything going on it can seem overwhelming, so please, let’s all take the next step together and make change.
