The Art of Survival

My project is organizing a pop up art show called Art of Survival to showcase art related to sexual assault + consent. In the spirit of the #metoo campaign, we stand as a community in solidarity with survivors of sexual assault, harassment, and violence.

All of the proceeds from the event will be donated to Bay Area organizations. Our last event supported SFWAR + Casa de las Madres and our next one, on August 4th, will go to Huckleberry House.

A group of artists, scientists, and activists in San Francisco are the event organizers. On August 4th, Minna Gallery will host our show. We will be displaying works from artists with a focus on showcasing those from the Bay Area with themes connected to our work.

Artists will each donate a few pieces to be displayed at the show, to be part of a silent auction where anyone attending can bid on them as they enjoy the show. There will be light snacks + refreshments provided, and alcoholic beverages for sale. We will also have guest speakers from the organizations.

This is the second installment of Art of Survival - the first one was in December, and we raised over $5000 for anti-rape organizations in the area! We want to top that with this event!
