As a contemporary art gallery it is impossible not to address the recent intolerable tragedies and injustices against George Floyd and countless others. These events are reminders that we must unite as a community to speak and act against prejudice in any form.
Arredon Art stands in solidarity with those demanding justice and stand committed to a world where we challenge our biases–where we listen in order to understand, to be responsive, and to honor one another and our diverse public and communities.
We believe change happens with one individual at a time and we believe in the power of art and community. As such, we invite you to join us and donate to the ART FOR JUSTICE fund.
The Art for Justice Fund was founded by philanthropist and arts patron Agnes Gund in 2017. The fund strives to disrupt the U.S. criminal justice system through four grant-making strategies: keeping people out of jail and prison, shortening sentences, promoting reentry, and changing the narrative through art.
Arredon Art is pledging to gift an original painting by artist Desjardins, 18″ x 18″ to the highest donation of $250 or more. Simply forward your donation confirmation to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 10th. Winner to be announced on July, 13th.
Please contact us with any questions.
We are compelled to take action and thank our community for joining us in making a change through art.
Elsie Arredondo, Gallery Director and the Arredon Art Artists and Team.
