> DESCRIPTION

A VERY prestigious foundation, USA Artists, has invited me to create a project for their new venture, USA PROJECTS. They really like what I proposed, and last night the project went live on their web site.

After a very successful first “printing”, I was inspired to create hundreds of photo blankets and distribute them, free of charge, to cold and weary Occupiers and the 99% demonstrators across the country (Buffalo, N.Y.C., Washington D.C., and Las Vegas, to name a few).

Winter and spring, are still here, and nights can be chilly! The 99% (YOU!) your children and grandchildren are out there, trying to make a new future for themselves, and their offspring. These protective and politically inspired blanket/ponchos will provide shelter, security, and warmth!

Each large, thick, 100% cotton woven blanket is a limited edition abstract design, created from an image that was taken from TV broadcasts of politicians and talking heads. Later, these photos were bleached into abstraction by either me or the public during an art performance event.  

I am asking you now to donate ANY amount. The more money that is raised, the more blankets I can distribute! Plus, if you donate $25 or more, you get an artist created and signed “perk”. Donate at the highest level ($1,000), and you get all five perks, including a limited edition signed blanket/poncho (and a tax deduction). Because the blankets are woven, each side is the opposite color, so you actually get 2 designs for the “price” of one! There are 50 days left, and USA PROJECTS is matching all $50 donations 1:1, so please help me now, rather than later.

So, please, click on this link, watch my video, read about the perks, and donate today! Here is the link:    http://www.usaprojects.org/project/the_big_cover_up

Thanks for your time and support!
