Go Fund Me Spotlight: Unnatural Election Art Project

ABOUT THE PROJECT: “Unnatural Election” is an art project that gathers creative responses from around the world. The project was launched on November 9th, 2016, amidst the shock and heartache of the election results.

A Word From Andrea Arroyo

I have been doing this because I truly believe that art can change the world. I have been managing and funding the project on my own since November.
Now, I NEED YOUR HELP to continue!
All donations fund the art project directly, including:
–  Exhibition expenses (Space, postcards, exhibiton materials, supplies.)
– Shipping and postage.
– Printing of artwork (Multiple sets of over 350 images)
– Promotion.
– Administration (Database, office supplies.)
– Social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram)
– The Unnatural Election Book (print-on-demand, pending on funding.)
– Website (Hosting, management.)

Can you help? No amount is too small.
