New Poster Giveaway by Lydia Moyer

Artist, Lydia Moyer has created a new poster, as a follow up to her much talked about: "Make America an Endless Expanse of Old Growth Forest with no Certain Borders Again," (which have all been dispersed).  This new one, also newsprint, is two-sided with the words 'Melt Your Guns' on one side and 'Melt Your Sons' on the other.  We are lucky to be giving them away with orders while supplies last.

Here is what Lydia had to say about this one:

" I live in Charlottesville where this year, on the anniversary of the Unite The Right rally which brought hundreds of gun-wielding young male white supremacists to town in 2017, there were checkpoints around the city where the police could take your knives and bats and paintball guns and water guns and pellet guns away but not your AK47 because open carry is legal in Virginia."

Note from the artist: If you don't want to hang them up, "they are also excellent fire-starters : )"

Ashley Lukashevsky Illustration

We were excited to see this illustration by LA based artist & illustrator Ashley Lukashevsky pop up in our Instagram feed recently.  She was lucky enough to get our very last Lydia Moyer/ Tero Juuti newsprint poster giveaway.  It's the ultimate when something you've had a hand in inspires artwork from others.  Ashley does illustrations to "dismantle patriarchal nonsense and systemic racism," and is involved with The Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, "a revival of Martin Luther King’s movement to topple the linked systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, and environmental devastation."

Make America... newsprint poster by Lydia Moyer & Tero Juuti

While supplies last, we are giving away this special, limited run- newsprint poster with every purchase made online or at our Lump Gallery location in Raleigh.  It was the idea of Charlottesville, VA- based artist Lydia Moyer as a spin off of what she sees America should be, mocking Trump's 'Make America Great Again' slogan:  "Make America An Endless Expanse of Old-Growth Forest With No Certain Borders Again."  Moyer enlisted the help of Finnish designer Tero Juuti to recreate the MAGA hat typography -look into this newsprint poster.  The result is, as someone pointed out to Moyer after the fact: "some irony in the whole project since newsprint is tied to deforestation."  22.75" x 27.5"
