EVEN MICHELE BACHMANN BELIEVES "WE ALL HAVE THE SAME CIVIL RIGHTS"
BILLBOARD IN MINNEAPOLIS AGAINST THE DISCRIMINATORY MARRIAGE AMENDMENT
We’re using Michelle Bachmann’s own words to help defeat an amendment on the 2012 ballot in Minnesota that would ban same-sex marriage. The billboard company was iffy on putting this up, but eventually agreed. Will they take it down if they get complaints from MB? The money to rent the billboard was donated by Artists in Storefronts, Cult Status Gallery and concerned Minnesotans. Thanks!
MINNESOTA ID CHECK
There was also a Voter ID amendment on Minnesota’s 2012 ballot, so we did a flyer to remind Minnesotans that to get IDs, they have to pay and pay. We all know that Voter ID laws are not about voter fraud, which rarely occurs. They are a right wing attempt to prevent people from voting -- especially poor people.
It's always annoyed us that lots of museums have the names of famous artists inscribed on their facades … and none are women. So, we've come up with a solution. This poster premiered in an exhibition of recent work at Columbia College Chicago, March, 2012.

DO WOMEN HAVE TO BE NAKED TO GET INTO BOSTON MUSEUMS?
BOSTON MOBILE BILLBOARD PROJECT
We went to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and counted the number of women artists on exhibit versus the number of female nudes in the art works. This poster traveled around Boston during our exhibition "Not Ready to Make Nice" at Monserrat College of Art Gallery. Few women artists can get their work shown INSIDE the Boston MFA, but we can make lots of trouble OUTSIDE. When the MFA saw our billboard truck, they immediately tweeted they are trying to do better.
