We have had a gallery with twelve other artists in Oakland, we curated exhibitions, worked with an artist on Death Row, facilitated free art making with thousands of individuals at the ARTcart on the streets of San Francisco, we have facilitated global virtual interviews with hundreds of artists from around the world, we have been written about in the media and have been interviewed on the radio. Our latest ARTreach campaign is Take 5: ARTbreak Day 2011, which is Bay Area art intervention.
In Lauren's personal ART form, she ventures in many directions. One is the cool concept that everything can be reused. The name of this project is Up Cycled Unlimited, were you acquire your own, "Practice Random Acts of ART!" for only 25 bucks. Lauren also has created several other t-shirt mantras for many of her friends and family.
The manifesto of Up Cycled Unlimited, is"I believe all materials have more than one life and I am determined to prove it with my products. At upcycledunlimited.com you will find playing cards that have been turned into earrings, old thrift store t-shirts with new original screenprints, old silk ties reused as a handle for a purse, and much more." Also, you can check out Lauren's whole repertoire as an Artist @ Lauren Usher.com.
I will end with Practice Random Acts of ART! you all!!! Everyone is an Artist, what is your form? I really believe that the world will become a better place, if we all start creating, expressing, and not destroying.
What would your t-shirt logo be?
