HERE WITH YOU: messages of love/support/fire for difficult times

HERE WITH YOU is art + words from artists + makers, with the dual goals of providing messages to remember and share in difficult times, and raising money for much-needed charitable organizations. Maximum portion of proceeds from all sales will be donated to the charities of the artists' choices.

In addition, this project hopes to remind us all that we need art in troubled times. It can be difficult for many to make art when the world seems terrible, and yet when times are dark, art is most needed. 

HERE WITH YOU hopes to provide words and art for these complicated days, and to inspire artists + makers everywhere to collaborate and keep CREATING hope + light, as we need them now most of all. 

"This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we write, we do language. That is how civilizations heal.

I know the world is bruised and bleeding, and though it is important not to ignore its pain, it is also critical to refuse to succumb to its malevolence. Like failure, chaos contains information that can lead to knowledge -- even wisdom. Like art." Toni Morrison
