L.A. vs WAR: Art for Peace in the Hope Era
Join us in sending a message! We choose education, jobs, health, compassion, community over WAR.
LA Vs. WAR is happening September 9-11 and will send a creative PEACE shockwave out into the world. We need YOUR help in getting the doors open and spreading the word from LA, across the U.S. and beyond.
The more we raise, the bigger the impact we can have. Will you join us in this push for peace? It's needed now more than ever!
LA VS WAR
LA Vs. WAR will mark the 10th anniversary of the September 11 2001 attacks with a massive group art exhibition and event taking place in Downtown Los Angeles from 9/9/11 to 9/11/11 at the Vortex. LA Vs. WAR presents some of today’s most prolific, pro-peace/anti-war, political artists in a multi-media exhibition chronicling the creative responses to the current military conflicts in the Middle East/North Africa/Central Asia, The Global War on Terror, the Drug Wars, and other wars on marginalized peoples. After the September 2011 show, we plan to travel the exhibition as "Vs. WAR" to other cities in the U.S. and abroad in the spirit of peace and creative collaboration.
LA Vs. WAR is part exhibition, part experience. The art show will be curated by Yo! Peace, Center for the Study of Political Graphics, Political Gridlock and Ad Hoc Art and will feature a large selection of fine art and limited edition prints and posters. Live art demonstrations and workshops will engage the audience in creative activities ranging from graffiti, t-shirt printing, stenciling, and more. Teach-ins with our grassroots partners will inform and inspire attendees to transform their own lives and communities.
