This is more than a project, it's a movement!

Can art fuel a movement? You bet it can! History is thick with examples of artists igniting popular movements that spread important messages and challenge the status quo. We believe that art is as much a part of life as food, water and air. This campaign supports the creation of a limited edition of 22”x30” original silkscreen and digital prints created by Newark-based artist Lunar New Year (LNY), in collaboration with artist and master printer Jase Clark.

LNY's print, entitled FOOD WATER AIR ART, speaks to the need to prioritize, fund and support the arts. Two award-winning organizations –ArtPride NJ and the Printmaking Center of NJ have teamed up to mobilize the arts community and hand deliver FOOD WATER AIR ART posters to elected officials throughout NJ, giving arts organizations a chance to share personal stories about how the arts make a difference in their communities. LNY’s poster will be displayed in theaters, art galleries, dance centers and music halls as a call to action. Artists, arts supporters and performers nationwide will support the FOOD WATER AIR ART campaign, not only by making a contribution, but also by prominently displaying the poster, wearing the t-shirt and putting the bumper sticker on their cars, laptops, and wherever their creative hearts take them.

Join the movement! Tell friends and family to join it too! 

Risks and challenges

All projects face potential obstacles.This one has larger-than-life concepts at its core. ArtPride NJ and the Printmaking Center of NJ are proud of their highly skilled professional staff members who understand that challenges arise in the pursuit of any worthy cause. Our perseverance and flexibility will serve this project well.

Here's a challenge for you! The arts are always first on the chopping block and viewed as "discretionary" funding. Our project is a reminder that the arts really aren't discretionary, and shouldn't be the first consideration when budgets are tight. There are stories that pop up in the news every day, some recent ones include music teachers being laid off because of tight school budgets. We shouldn't defend the arts ONLY when they are threatened. We need to remind influencers that the arts are a critical part of our lives ALL the time. This project will help us do just that!
