ART > MONEY: Design to Define a Movement – Contest

“So… many of you know that I believe in the power of art to shed light on politics and encourage people to investigate issues further. You may also know that I’m passionate about eliminating the corrupting influence of money in politics. I want democracy to work for everyone, not just the wealthy and powerful. Well, bam!… the unPAC campaign is an opportunity to bring art and ant-corruption activism together. Please check it out and help to create and spread some great art while inspiring the restoration of democracy!   This competition is about empowering people to take back control of their democracy, not from one party or another, but from the influx of money that has concentrated political power in the hands of the few.  It’s about using art to push back against the existing power structures in our society and inspiring real change”.   -Shepard

Important VOTER Information

After seeing my Sarah Siverman voter suppression post, RJ Rushmore from Vandalog told me about a site that clearly explains the voter ID requirements in each state. VoterID.me is the site to check out. Voting is extremely important despite the inherent flaws in the two party system. Make sure you have what you need to vote and please exercise your right to weigh in by voting!

Just Sayin’…

Do you have the proper I.D. to vote?

Sarah Silverman is smart, funny, and gives a sh*t… all qualities that I admire and are thoroughly demonstrated in her video response to Republican voter suppression tactics. WARNING: there are some bad words in the video, so if you have sensitive ears you may want to avoid this video and the real world in general. Life  with those monks who don’t speak might be your best future option. For those unafraid of dealing with the real world with its language and PROBLEMS, please check out this video.

Moby Figured It Out

Moby is an acquaintance and he shared his personal take on Mitt Romney’s comments about 47% of the country supporting Obama because they depend on government assistance. Moby’s story is similar to many people’s even if his success is extraordinary compared to most. Moby is very generous to charities and progressive in his politics… he is compassionate and understands the struggles of the common person. So do I. I never got any govt. assistance, but I lived at the poverty level the first ten years of my art career. I had no health insurance, so any complication from my diabetes would have sent me to a govt. medical program, or I would have ended up in so much debt I would have needed food stamps. A lot of people are one illness or layoff away from govt. assistance, not because they are lazy or parasitic. I worked my ass off, but was still poor. However, I was laying the groundwork for the success I would achieve later. That success has allowed me to pay a lot in taxes. Check out Moby’s story.

THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND PRINT

As some people may know, I’m an advocate of immigration policy reform. The United States is a relatively new country that was founded by immigrants and for years welcomed immigrants. When creating the art inspired by Neil Young’s cover of Woody Guthrie’s song “This Land Is Your Land” I wanted to comment on the current attitudes toward immigration and highlight a lost verse from the song. That verse goes:

As I went walkin’ I saw a sign there
And on the sign it said “No Trespassing”
But on the other side it didn’t say nothing
That side was made for you and me

There is humor and profound commentary in that verse. Woody Guthrie was a champion of the the least powerful people in society and pointed out class inequality and abuse of power. Some people called Guthrie “socialist”, I call him compassionate.
