Please Join Us For The Closing Reception of the Occupy Ventura Exhibit at
Bell Arts Factory
TODAY —Saturday, November 26, 2011
3 pm — 9 pm
ART • PHOTOS • INFORMATION • NETWORKING • MUSIC • OPEN MIC
The exhibit has been on display for the month of November. Come see the art and photos, find out more about the Occupy Movement and how you can be involved, hear music, and be part of an Open Mic. Also in solidarity with Small Business Saturday, there will be a Local Artisans/Vendors area*.
The ambition of this exhibit has been to fuel people with energy for the purpose of channeling creative efforts into creating some real, positive, meaningful and lasting change for people worldwide. It is part of the growing artist contingent of the 99% movement. The exhibit includes actual handmade cardboard poster signs used at Occupy Ventura rallies and photos of those 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.
*LOCAL ARTISANS/VENDORS: In support of local artisans and local small businesses, we are offering space on Saturday to sell your art and/or products. Tables are free but we request a donation (donations go to Bell Arts). Please contact Eileen MacEnery to reserve your space by Friday. 805-651-9161.
