I’m writing today to ask you to focus your attention now—and your support!—on this visionary and uplifting organization.
As a poet, I am always searching for what will shift me to see, feel and understand the world in a way I’ve never experienced.
Every exhibit at ArtRage does this work!
Its year-round, ground-breaking, free exhibits are a tremendous resource for our human development and growth. The imaginative range of its programming extends beyond what is available at many museums in even the biggest metropolis.
Stereotype-busting shows this past year included photographs from the Tijuana border, and a “Disarming America” exhibit on gun violence. And upcoming are portraits of Queer icons in queer and trans communities of color, and “Struggle to Connect” art in a call-and-response between women artists of diverse backgrounds.
Recently I had the wonderful experience of working with ArtRage curators to make the work of beloved trans activist and author Leslie Feinberg available in “Screened In, Looking Out: a Disabilities Photo Exhibit”—Leslie’s complex view of the world visible from our Hawley-Green apartment only a couple of blocks from where the ArtRage gallery is located.
Let’s show appreciation for the gallery’s dedicated and fascinating work by sending material support. This is especially needed right now as ArtRage enters its 15th year with the serious challenge of the ongoing pandemic and uncertainty surrounding safe, indoor events.
ArtRage turns to you to meet this challenge–and to continue to bring you the world seen through the critical, surprised and appreciative eyes of artists who envision a more hopeful world.
Thank you in advance for contributing generously to ArtRage as a way of supporting that movement forward.
Yours in the struggle,
Minnie Bruce Pratt
