Artists Take Action
Artists Take Action is an amazing project that gathers work from nine incredible artists each month, and auctions it off via Instagram to benefit a different charitable organization that the artists have helped to choose.
March's auction, in which I won the above astonishing Zelma Rose necklace, raised $1670 for Forward Together, a multi-racial organization that works to ensure women, youth, and families have the power and resources they need to reach their full potential.
February's action, in which I picked up the two stunning artworks below by Christine Buckton Tillman and Alicia Dornadic, raised $1795 for 350.org, which helps organize grassroots climate-focused campaigns, projects, and actions in 188 countries.
I hear April's auction is coming pretty soon, so I encourage you to hustle on over and start following @artiststakeaction now! Though the auctions are run through Instagram, which each one disappearing when the new one launches, there's an archive of all the past ones you can peek at over here.
