GIVE 150™

I saw this commercial for GIVE150 the other night and decided to do a piece to promote the site.
Info of GIVE 150:

One hundred and fifty years ago, America was torn apart by Civil War before the union was finally restored in 1865. Today, HISTORY invites all Americans to help preserve Civil War sites and stories through the Give 150™ national campaign.

Give 150™ donations will go directly to the Civil War Trust and the National Park Foundation, both non-profit 501 (c) 3 organizations, to help protect Civil War sites and lands, and support their interpretation. HISTORY will also provide the public with the opportunity to actively give back to your communities through service and preservation projects as part of this initiative.

Illiterate presents Jolly B 13, a group exhibition of thirteen well established artists whose works range from contemporary folk and outsider art to highly graphic forms and pop surrealism. Guest curated by artist Jeremy "THINKMULE" Pruitt, this numerically driven assemblage is to him is "a celebration of the diversity of art". The numeric title of the show reflects Pruitt's personal affinity for the symbolic value of digits apparent in his own practice. In this case his attention turned towards the number 13 and the contentious associations it contains. As an object of superstition, it has captivated people of many beliefs for millennia and evoked a range of connotations in mythology depending on the cultural reference.

Jolly B 13 is an exhibition of artists who through their varied associations will playfully contribute additional perspectives to this most polarizing prime number. From uninhibited primitive representation and expressively grotesque subject matter to delicately polished and meticulous renderings of strange fantasies, this eclectic collection begs consideration in its juxtaposition of approaches to object making. Whether a skeptic or a believer, the inherent meaning between this body of work, like that of the number 13, will certainly remain in the eye of the beholder.

Jeremy and Melanie Pruitt Crawlspace at Black Book Gallery (Friday, free)
Crawlspace is our favorite type of art show, because it features two artists who work in entirely different mediums. It's like you get to walk into two different galleries at once. Jeremy Pruitt will be exhibiting some of his wooden creations, whereas Melanie will be showing off some intricate line drawings. If you're hitting up the Santa Fe district tonight, you're not going to want to miss this one.
