We Make America Opening Reception

Pratt Library, 1st Floor, Brooklyn Campus
October 15, 2018 at 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

We Make America is a group of artists/designer/activists who meet to create signage and artifacts of protest and persuasion. We are over 5000 members nationwide through Facebook. The group was formed in 2016 after the election of this president. We are centered in New York City and meet in various members’ studios for concentration on particular actions of protest and to fabricate and paint signage, buttons, pins, torches, giant “Pussy Gates” as for the Women’s march last spring. Due to the composition of artists and designers and creative makers in the group, the props and signs are spectacular and graphic and beautifully painted. The Pussy Gates, referring to Trump’s improprieties and the Me Too era we are experiencing, were shown on nationwide NBC news after the march. The Pratt workshop and exhibition are designed to foster activism and to rally students to get out and vote. It is about conveying the message that everyone’s voice is important.

Exhibition Dates: October 12-Nov 19
