Artists4ERA: Virginia Edition
February 17 – (extended to) June 4, 2023
Virginia Museum of History & Culture • Richmond, Virginia
About the Exhibit:
The founding ideal of the United States that “all men are created equal” has not always been a reality. People of color, women, Americans with disabilities, and other groups have had to fight for equal rights.
In 2020, Virginia became the 38th and final state needed to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA)—the culmination of a century-long battle for women’s equality. Artists4ERA is part of ongoing efforts to ensure that the ERA becomes the 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Participating artists from across the country have created images to raise awareness about the ERA and to promote gender equality.
This exhibit features 28 original works of art from the Artists4ERA collection, including 20 designs by Virginia artists. The vitality and diversity of these pieces embody an enduring commitment to a Constitution that guarantees equality for all.
Artists: Crudcity, Evergib, Faithe Norrell, Haadia Khan, Hamilton Glass, Jess Walters, Jowarnise, Mahari Chabwera, Meme, Michael-Birch Pierce, Nico Cathcart, Noah Scalin, Pete Morelewicz, Rachel Welsh de Iga, Roshi K, Sam Skrimpz, Silly Genius, Ashley Hawkins / Studio Two Three, Amir Khadar, Chuck Sperry, Claudia “Claw Money” Gold, Deedee Cheriel, Ferris Plock, Kelly Tunstall, Shepard Fairly, Sophia Pineda, Tara McPherson, Tracie Ching

I will not be able to attend the opening, but I have partnered with Artists 4 ERA and Vote Equality for a special surprise!
Thanks to Three Notch’d Brewing Company and their support of gender equality, the brewer teamed up with Artists4ERA to create “Joyful Ruckus” IPA to celebrate the upcoming exhibit at the Virginia Museum of History & Culture. I am honored to donate my “Flower of Democracy” design for this limited edition beverage which will be available at the Opening Gala event of “Artists4ERA: Virginia Edition” on February 17th.
Artists4ERA is organized by VoteEquality, a grass roots, non-partisan organization working to guarantee equality for all Americans by enshrining the Equal Rights Amendment in the U.S. Constitution.
