upcoming installations: seattle & olympia

10 Oct

We are excited to announce our first out-of-town installations! We will be in Olympia on Saturday, October 20, and Seattle on Sunday, October 21. Please join us!

As always, we stand for families and loving relationships of all kinds, but we are especially interested in promoting marriage equality during these installations, especially in Olympia, the heart of Washington politics and law.

installation event: love art gallery

We appreciate the warm welcome we got on Saturday at Love Art Gallery, both from owners Ruby and Ted and from the artists and community members who stopped by. We also appreciate the live music that was provided by Andrew Grade.

installation event: uptown vancouver

3 Oct

What a lovely turnout on Friday for our first proper installation event. The community in downtown/uptown Vancouver is very strong and supportive, and we felt it as folks took hearts and hung them all over. Once again, a big thanks to our friend Anni for being our photographer for this event. And, of course, a big thanks to those who participated.

happy art-lovin’ community members

hearts: from mari

Today we did our first big public interactive event and it was great. It was an excellent example of community, friendship, and love. We also appreciated the generous donations of many of the folks who participated – we are well on our way to having gas money to make a trip up to Olympia and Seattle in October with Love is a Radical Act (details coming soon)!

Early on, Mari took one heart and quickly went a couple of blocks down, hung it at a bank, took photos, and came back and showed me. I asked her to send them to me and she was kind enough to do so.

She also took another heart and ended up hanging it further into downtown – I love that she managed to get it hanging on a blank wall.

Thanks everyone! There will be photos of the actual event posted soon. In the meantime, we look forward to the next installation event at Love Art gallery.
