“He is everything that I never knew I wanted.” Today is 2 years being away from South Africa, 2 years of Jesus surprising me and giving me experiences and times that I never knew I would ever have.
This morning I woke up early and went on an adventure for the sunrise with mi Giu. This morning being with him, so in love with him, so excited to spend my life with him and future adventures, God reminded me in all that of my relationship with Him. How he is so in love with me, so excited to spend time with me and take me on adventures.
New seasons starting I want to push for more intimacy with God, just as I am always seeking to find out new things about Giuliano, I want the same desire for God. Giuliano represents so many things that happened in my life these last two years, all things I never expected all things I never knew I loved or wanted. Thank you Jesus for blessing me and knowing me for loving me and challenging me.

The ARTE team is excited to reveal the "community project" we mentioned last Friday - it's our Annual Fundraiser on December 10th! Our theme this year is "Murals & Mimosas: A Celebration of Women Street Artists of Color", and we are so excited to invite all of you to join us at a brunch celebration and exhibition of female street artists from across New York and around the world to raise money for ARTE’s upcoming year of programming. •

Please celebrate with us as we raise money for our crowdfunding campaign. This year, the Crowdfunding Campaign ties directly to our mural project that has been designed by the young women at Rikers on the "Global Women Heroes" unit, but has not yet been executed. As a collaborative public art effort, community members will paint the mural, in an New York City neighborhood outside of Rikers, honoring the work of incarcerated young women artists. In efforts to educate and mobilize community members to support women in the mass incarceration system, the project will be followed by a panel discussion and a call to action to end systemic injustice. •

Visit the for more details on the crowdfunding campaign. If you have any questions, please email marissa@artejustice.org. We look forward to building community with you! •

Kids from The Boys & Girls Club visited our gallery today for a group tour and art project! We all had so much fun. The kids learned about how we elect our leaders by viewing artwork in our #GiveUsTheVote exhibition and learned about the word "vote" through a craft project. To schedule a group tour (available for adults, too!!) please contact Kim at 914-428-4220. More about #GiveUsTheVote: artsw.org/giveusthevote

We are over the moon (but, who are we kidding, not surprised because y’all are generous af) to announce that 2 ANONYMOUS DONORS have come forward and pledged to donate 50% and 10% of our income tonight (1k goal) to Brooklyn-local organization EL PUENTE. .
.
Founded in 1982 by Luis Garden Acosta, El Puente is a community human rights institution that promotes leadership for peace and justice through the engagement of members (youth and adult) in the arts, education, scientific research, wellness and environmental action. They are currently in need not only for support to keep their programs thriving but Hurricane Relief after the devastation of Irma and Maria in Puerto Rico. The donations can go toward helping El Puente members, their families and neighbors begin to reclaim their lives and homes. .
.
In light out of our donors’ generosity, we will be offering a PLEDGE STATION at our FANCY PARTY tonight. By helping Rat Queen reach our goal, giving us the ability to create art that is inclusive and radical, as well as the ability to pay our artists, you will also be helping other communities in need. .
.
Change starts now.
See you tonight! Formal attire required. Looks encouraged. $5 entry. Cheap bar. Lots of auction items. Plenty of opportunity to dance, mingle and conspire. (Doors at 7, show at 8)

#PeaceBoxes
The Priority Boxes Art Project by Franck de las Mercedes ©  Art with a Message of Peace and Hope
With
labels that read "Fragile Contains:Peace, Love or Hope", visual artist
Franck de Las Mercedes has sent abstractly painted, seemingly empty
boxes to anybody, anywhere in the world. The "Priority Boxes" project is
a public art series that seeks to initiate dialogue on peace, challenge
people to reconsider their ability to influence change and question the
fragility, value and priority given to those concepts. Each box, sent
by mail to anyone who requests one, is both a canvas for a unique
abstract painting and a platform for communication through art. A
mixture of art and activism, the boxes are sent free to convey that
something of such priority as peace should not have a price and that art
can be both inclusive and accessible to all. From his small New Jersey
studio, the artist has sent over 18,000 boxes around the globe, to
countries in every continent.

Check this out! The official unveiling of this mural, on 19th and Broadway in Denver's downtown, is Tuesday at lunchtime, 11:30-12:30. This mural and the one in Colorado Springs are part of Kaiser's "find your words" campaign, to get people talking about mental health! Such a creative idea to use art!

Chinese contemporary artist and activist, Ai Weiwei (@Aiww), just launched his latest epic project, Good Fences Make Good Neighbors. An homage to Robert Frost’s poem “Mending Wall," where the need for a boundary wall is being questioned, the artist is anchoring over 300 pieces and installations throughout New York, utilizing architecture and sculpture to jostle New Yorkers into recognition of the current sociopolitical environment related to refugees, both locally and abroad.⠀

The #refugee crisis hasn't slowed down. As of mid-2016, there were 16.5 million refugees globally. More than 30 percent of all refugees came from Syria, the largest source of global refugees. There's a misconception that refugees want to come West. They want to stay as close to their homes as possible so that they can return to their lives as soon as they are able to do so. That explains why the top refugee-hosting countries neighbor conflict areas like South Sudan and Syria.⠀

It's only when refugees realize they may not be able to get access to basic resources and a decent quality of life in their new host countries that they attempt the often dangerous journey to the West, where they have met hostility and erected fences.⠀

#green #sustainability #cleanair #instaart #nature #earth #HenrikHåkansson displaced nature too but in a much more shocking way. His Fallen Forest is a 16-metre-square segment of rainforest re-planted in black plastic pots and flipped on its side as a comment on the unbalanced relationship between man and nature. Powerful lights pointed towards this portion of nature enable the plants to grow horizontally.

'Suspended Together'
By Manal AlDowayan @manaldowayan

@edgeofarabia #repost #regram
@manaldowayan's 'Suspended Together' doves are now part of the public collection of the @britishmuseum. The installation gives the impression of movement and freedom. However, a closer look at the 200 doves allows the viewer to realise that they are actually frozen and suspended with no hope of flight. An even closer look shows that each five carried on its body a permission document that allows a Saudi woman to travel. Notwithstanding their circumstances, all Saudi women are required to have this document, issued by their appointed male guardian • This artwork was first shown at our #TheFutureofaPromise exhibition at the 2011 @labiennale in Venice.
