ABOUT THE ART

Today I am releasing three new artworks: a Vaccinated Bears print, a small Bandaid painting, and a large Bandaid painting. The first two will be available for 24 hours, and the third is an edition of five. 50% of sales will form a funding pool for public art projects by local artists, including an upcoming project supporting vaccination.

These are bears from my recent #VaccinateSF campaign. The print is archival pigment on archival cotton rag and 24" x 18".

I have spent much of the last two weeks talking with friends, community leaders, and other artists, trying to figure out how I can best support San Francisco's art scene. One clear learning is that I should focus more on equity — I recognize that I have had many privileges, and as I become more successful, I should uplift others without those advantages.

I am still figuring out how best to do this, but I have two initiatives I can talk about now:

The first is an upcoming rotation of the Painted Gentlemen murals on Alamo Square. These are a set of murals I have been curating for about two years. Heretofore I have been funding the rotations out of pocket, but I have always wanted a pool of money for prep and artist stipends. This time I have asked the artists to paint something immunity / pro-vaccine related, which is a big ask, but I have a fantastic set of artists lined up, representing diverse communities, including BIPOC and LGBT+ artists.

The second is providing the initial seed funding to a new project from the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. They are going to get more queer art in public spaces by using their influence to obtain walls, coordinating with a panel of artists to curate muralists, and then fundraise to provide stipends. I have promised them $10,000 to help kick off this project.
