“Throughout history artists have lent their creative expression to the ideas and issues that shape life in our communities, our country and our world. The MANIFESTEQUALITY Gallery gathers together a diverse array of hundreds of the nation’s most talented visual artists under one roof to celebrate that role and join with our gay (LGBT) friends, family members and co-workers to demand full and equal rights for all Americans.The MANIFESTEQUALITY Gallery, issues an inspiring, visual call-to-action, with hundreds of artists motivating public energy toward true reform on a local, state and national level.” http://www.manifestequality.com/about
EQUALITY IS THE NEW BLACK - although initially accepted by curators of the MANIFEST EQUALITY art show, because it could instigate art discourse—was pulled last minute by the sponsors moveon.org and not shown. There were two pieces pulled from the show due to their ‘provocative nature’, and this piece was one of them. I was surprised by the censorship of such a liberal watchdog.
