If you're in northern England this summer, don't miss the Keith Haring exhibition at Tate Liverpool, which will be the largest solo show for the artist ever in the UK! ⠀⠀
From June 14th, Tate Liverpool will present 85 works by the late artist, highlighting his role as an activist who addressed issues including AIDS awareness, racism, homophobia, capitalism and the environment. “Life and art really do walk a tightrope in Keith Haring’s work," explained Helen Legg, the director of Tate Liverpool. "He wanted to collapse distinctions between high and low and for his work to reach a really wide audience beyond the gallery.” ⠀⠀

“Once upon a time, 56 Bogart was the place to see art in Bushwick; today it’s no longer the neighborhood’s artistic nerve center. The galleries that remain are a mix of newcomers and longtime holdouts, of which Theodore:Art, at almost a decade old, is one. Peter Krashes’s current exhibition is a poignant reflection of the changes being felt throughout Brooklyn. The artist is a longtime community organizer, and in his gouache-on-paper paintings he captures street festivals, encounters with the New York Police Department and celebrity sightings near Barclays Center. Krashes paints with smooth, confident strokes but leaves blank specks throughout, suggesting the gaps of memory that make even the best representations of reality imperfect. Through May 18 at 56 Bogart Street, Bushwick”
In 1907 Enid purchased the old “Thaxter Academy” in Edgartown, MA. She used the property to open The Branstock Studio a summer art school. Enid & painter John C. Johansen (1876-1964) taught budding artists here for several years. Here is an advertisement for the school in The Craftsman, vol. XX, no. 2, May 1911. [Enid Yandell Papers, Mss.

Join us tomorrow night from 7 PM to 9 PM for the opening reception of July 19, a documentary exhibition of photos and videos by Ellie Shakiba. Shakiba fled Iran in 2013 seeking asylum in Australia, but ended up in detention on the remote island of Nauru due to Australia's cruel immigration policies intended to punish and deter refugees. Defying strict rules about recording inside the detention center, Shakiba documented the living conditions of her fellow refugees while imprisoned for six years. Her bravery and journalism have played an important role in alerting the world to the plight of refugees held in Australia’s offshore processing centers. The opening event will feature a talk and walkthrough of the show by the artist. ⠀
Visit sparcinla.org to learn more about Nauru, the significance of the date July 19th, and the artist.⠀
Loved working with this one ... Mel @freedom2uk planning/delivering art workshops together and putting up this exhibition! Thanks so much for this amazing opportunity and experience. Also thanks to all that came to the exhibition last night and for supporting the group of girls and their amazing work. We really need to see & encourage more art work like this to hear their stories. So lucky to have exhibited their work in such a beautiful space Victorian grade ll listed building @valentines.mansion - I think the last previous resident Sarah Ingleby would have been proud of the girls and the work they all produced! A big thank you @redbridgearts. Here’s to more projects like this !! ❤️ 📸 by @shash_loves#communityart#art#socialmedia#weaving#artandactivism#origami#valentinespark#artstory#freedom2#artandmentalhealth#empoweringgirls

ICYMI ✨ Our blog highlights Arts in Society grantees and the incredible work they do in Colorado to increase community wellness and social justice. Recently, local filmmaker and educator Alan Domínguez @locolane1 wrote a short blog post describing the motivation and vision behind his new documentary film about immigrants living in sanctuary in Colorado. “Document Ed.” chronicle the heartache and challenges of living in sanctuary to avoid deportation, as well as the undeniably fierce power of community activism and social advocacy.
“DocumentEd” is being developed and produced by Alan’s company Loco Lane Filmworks, in partnership with young local filmmakers. Together they are driven by a shared vision of highlighting the voices of people living in sanctuary, in their own words.
Alan Domínguez received an Arts in Society grant in 2018 to help fund Document Ed, which is set to be released later this year.
Our new grant cycle is open for submissions through September 19th! Individuals, groups, schools, gov’t entities, as well as non-profits are encouraged to submit applications. A non-profit tax status is NOT required to be eligible. For details, please visit our website, linked in our bio.
Read more about Document Ed. and many other compelling and innovative grantee projects on our blog at: redline.org/arts-in-society-blog
