    We dig people! Straight people, gay people, bi people, and transgender people; and we plan to demonstrate this in conservative North Orange County, where Proposition 8 passed overwhelmingly in 2008. The next Art With An Agenda exhibit is now scheduled for May 2013 at both PÄS and Hibbleton Galleries at the Magoski Arts Colony in Fullerton California. Again we are attempting to fuse a bit of social justice with art. The intent of this exhibit is to celebrate love in all its many combinations, to support marriage equality and to show mad love for Orange County’s LGBT community. We want to celebrate the normalcy of being a gay partner, a gay parent, a gay teacher and gay anything … this will be all about love.

    To be consider all art must be on topic, and in some way the work must further our agenda. Fifty percent of the proceeds from each work sold at the exhibit will support OC AIDS Walk, which will be held two days after our opening night, the other fifty percent will be paid to the participating artists.

    The previous Art With An Agenda Exhibit “The Life & Murder of Kelly Thomas” attracted 1,200 people opening night. This one is shaping up to be just as big. You will find some media stuff on the last show here

    Thank you so very much!
