Artists Give For Equality

100% of proceeds go to fight for the ratification of Equal Rights Amendment

We are so excited to announce that top artists are coming together to donate items for an end-of-year online auction to benefit Equal Means Equal.

Some of the artists donating pieces are well-known and highly collectible, including Shepard Fairey. Royal, Peter Coffin, Spencer Tunick, Meghan Hall.  Our Artistic Director, Natalie White also has included two limited signed prints of “Don’t Tread on Me” and “Sisters of Liberty.” Many of these generous artists have had shows at museums and galleries all over the world including: Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum, Venus Over Manhattan, Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, The Saatchi Gallery, and The WhiteBox Foundation to name a few.

Whether you are looking to buy a Holiday present for someone else or a really great piece of artwork for yourself, your purchase will help Equal Means Equal give the gift of equality to benefit all Americans.  The artists are completely donating their work, so 100% of the proceeds will help us organize upcoming important actions on the ground to finish the job of ratifying the ERA once and for all.

Another way to give back to our ERA community is to sign up to be a Silent Sentinel. We have almost hit the 1 month mark and we are going strong, but we need your help to keep the Vigil alive. It is a gift to yourself as much as it is a gift to the world.

Millie Brown

Millie Brown will do an intimate performance piece in your home for you and up to 20 of your closest friends. Millie Brown is a British performance artist. She was born in 1986 in London, United Kingdom. Brown is best known as Lady Gaga’s “vomit artist”. She is also a founding member of the !WOWOW! Collective of London. She began her career at age 17 on a Berlin stage where she vomited onto a canvas after drinking glasses of dyed milk, a performance that lasted for two hours. In an interview with The Guardian, she states, “I wanted to use my body to create art. I wanted to come from within, to create something beautiful that was raw and uncontrollable.” She now works and resides in Los Angeles, California.

Shepard Fairey

Expanding on the legacies of artists such as Keith Haring and Andy Warhol, Shepard Fairey’s practice disrupts the distinction between fine and commercial art. A major artist of the street art movement, Fairey rose to prominence in the early 1990s through the dispersion of posters, stickers, and murals, related to his Obey Giant campaign, which yielded an international cultural phenomenon. Fairey’s iconic poster of President Barack Obama was adopted as the official emblem associated with the presidential campaign and encapsulates a number of recurring concerns in the artist’s work, including propaganda, portraiture, and political power.

Peter Coffin

Interdisciplinary artist Peter Coffin (American, b. 1972) challenges the traditional boundaries between sculpture, installation, video, audio, and painting. Often referencing different art historical themes such as culture, language, science, color, and media, he reinvents traditional narratives by approaching them in subtle forms of surrealism. Coffin’s work has been featured in numerous exhibitions held at institutions such as the Aspen Art Museum, Colorado, Palais de Tokyo, Paris, the Barbican, London. His work is also in the permanent collections of many prominent institutions such as MoMA, New York, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Museo Jumex in Mexico City.

Spencer Tunick

Spencer Tunick (American, b.1967) is an American photographer who is known for staging shoots of nudes posing in different public spaces. He has organized some 75 shoots of this kind since 1994.

Spencer Tunick stages scenes in which the battle of nature against culture is played out against various backdrops, from civic center to desert sandstorm, man and woman are returned to a preindustrial, pre-everything state of existence. Tunick has traveled the globe to create these still and video images of multiple nude figures in public settings.

Spencer Tunick’s body of work explores and expands the social, political and legal issues surrounding art in the public sphere. Since 1992, Tunick has been arrested five times while attempting to work outdoors in New York City.
