I am very happy to reveal my poster to raise awareness for the Equal Rights Amendment. This issue means so much to me. Equality is the central issue of our day.
“Equality is the flower of democracy. Passing the Equal Rights Amendment — at long last — will be the path to gender equality for our American democracy. I am grateful to be called upon to include my voice in the collective call to bring about gender equality by amending the Constitution with passage of the ERA, and I was quick to reach out to fellow artists to join the call to action.” — Chuck Sperry, artist statement for Artists 4 ERA
VoteEqualityUS is a nonpartisan grassroots effort promoting equal rights for all Americans, working to ensure the addition of the fully-ratified 28th Amendment (Equal Rights) to the United States Constitution.
I created my ERA poster to intentionally refer to my art print, Clio, the Muse of history, daughter of memory. I suggest we remember where we came from, how we got here, who we are, and where we are going. History is not only a collection of objective facts; history is also a story. How we organize those objective facts says a lot about who we are, or who we want to be.
There will be a very limited online release of my poster in March – specific time TBA – and a series of art shows of all the talented Artists 4 ERA.
The first event will be the evening of Saturday, March 19th, 2022 at Oakstop’s Broadway Gallery. Oakstop is located at 1721 Broadway in Oakland, CA.
