DESCRIPTION

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 17th from 1-6PM

This past Sunday, the US Army Corps of Engineers denied the final permit needed by DAPL to continue drilling through the Standing Rock reservation. This decision marks a great victory for Standing Rock and the water protectors that have risked their health and safety to protect our environment. Many protectors are wary of this decision however, and plan to continue staying at Standing Rock in light of this.

This benefit exhibition brings together 100 artists from across the United States who all generously donated their paintings, drawings, and prints with hope to raise money in support of Standing Rock. The exhibition will show as a celebration for this recent victory as well as raise funds necessary to continue the water protector's fight against DAPL. All proceeds will benefit the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation through the Civil Liberties Defense Center and the Standing Rock Medic & Healer Council.
