  • ...a benefit exhibit in support of Occupy Wall Street
    Works for $99, $9.99 & .99’



    Ryan Ford            
    Organizer: Tatiana Veneruso  • Exhibition Concepts: Lizzie Zucker Saltz

    Organizer's Statement:
    We are the 99%. This is our collective voice. We have something to show you. This is what democracy looks like…

    Inspired by Occupy Wall Street movement, we are coming together to share our stories and raise awareness of a collective dissatisfaction with the socioeconomic state of our country and its increasingly imbalanced distribution of wealth.* Alarmingly, our democracy is rapidly losing the capacity to be "for the people, by the people."


    We are harnessing the power of artistic expression as a means of peaceful protest.

    The artists in this exhibit come from many different walks of life and work in all media: 2D, 3D, video, installation and performance.

    The majority of the proceeds* will benefit Occupy Wall Street protest organizations, providing support for food, supplies and legal fees.


    Transparency - Sustainability Statement:
    *Some of the proceeds will be shared with any artists who opt for a 60-40 split as well as 10% to recoup ATHICA's costs, the hosting non-profit art organization.
