Download Press Release: Bell Arts Factory: Occupy Exhibit Opening

Download Flyer: FIRST FRIDAYS—Bell Arts Factory and Stonework Studios November 4 Events



a reflection of the nationwide and now global popular street movement
against corporate greed and for financial and economic justice.
Friday, November 4, 2011
6 till 10
Bell Arts Factory’s Janet Addison Community Room

The ambition of this exhibit is to fuel people with energy for the purpose of channeling creative efforts into creating some real, positive, meaningful
and lasting change for working and disadvantaged people worldwide.
It is also part of the growing artist contingent of the 99% movement.
The exhibit will include actual handmade cardboard poster signs used at the Occupy Ventura rallies and photos of those same actions. Like the movement itself, the exhibit is grassroots in nature and with emphasis on free expression. The experience of true and direct democracy and the quest of finding and giving voice for the concerns of humanity is what motivates
and is at the core of this exhibit.

The exhibit corresponds with the national Move Your Money day,
an effort to get people to move their money out of the big corporation
controlled banks and into credit unions and community banks.

The first wall of the exhibit was started today …
