Giving Back Life
For this series, each work directly references or reflects on historical events, triumphant, and tragedies.
Because of this, each work I have designated a nonprofit that in some way relates to the subject matter. 50% of the sale/price of each work must be donated to that non-profit as part of purchase.
Ex. The triptych "The Crime of Being Married", 2020 is priced at $1,200.00. To purchase this work the seller must send a receipt showing that $600 has been donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center. The second half of payment is to the me the artist, but as with all my sales, this part can be done on a payment plan.
Southern Poverty Law Center monitors hate groups and other extremists throughout the U.S. and exposes their activities to law enforcement agencies, the media and the public.
They use the courts and other forms of advocacy to win systemic reforms on behalf of victims of bigotry and discrimination.
Housing Works fights for funding and legislation to ensure that all people living with HIV/AIDS have access to quality housing, healthcare, HIV prevention, and treatment, among other lifesaving services.
The Manna-hatta Fund presents an opportunity for all settlers to support the Indigenous peoples, such as the Lenni Lenape, who were forcefully displaced by European settlers and their descendants to create NYC and the US. Acting as the intertribal hub for our region, American Indian Community House provides health and wellness services, community, cultural events, and a voice for Indigenous peoples. 100% of all Manna-hatta Fund donations go directly to American Indian Community House.
