GIVING BACK: ART FOR CIVIL RIGHTS

GIVING BACK: ART FOR CIVIL RIGHTSManifest Equality Entrance Sign

As we’ve told you over the past few weeks, Blik was a proud sponsor of Manifest Equality which closed last Sunday in Hollywood. We had the pleasure of working with organizers Yosi Sergant and Apple Via to help transform the raw space into a sprawling, pop-up art gallery with more than 200 artists including street artists Robbie Conal, Swoon and Shepard Fairey, and illustrative painters Barry McGee, Gary Baseman and Elizabeth McGrath. Plus one of our favorites – the JUSTICE Mural by El Mac, Retna and Kofie. Watch the time lapse installation video.

The five-day show was a smashing success with 10,000 people trekking through the gallery to see art in addition to great musical lineups that included Fitz and The Tantrums, Sea Wolf, Ben Lee and Crystal Method.

While Manifest Equality has ended, the fight for full and equal rights still marches on. Visit Courage Campaign to find out more about repealing Proposition 8.
