Jun 26th 2020

Thank you to everyone protesting, art making, and working in solidarity with #BLM. We think it’s important for us to focus on art that supports the narrative and will be moving in that direction as a form of our work in progress.

In June, we are hosting Community Art Days in the LIP 20/20 Exhibit gallery where people can make signs/posters/stickers at the Hairpin Arts Center centering on #BlackLivesMatter.

The LIP 20/20 Exhibit gallery will also be open for viewing during our Community Art Days through June 30th:
• Sundays 4pm–7pm
• Wednesdays 3pm–8pm**
• Fridays 3pm–8pm**
** We may extend hours on Wednesdays and Fridays, depending on how many people want to stay in the space. Note: moved our Wednesday Studio Days to the Hairpin too.

The gallery is also available by appointment this month.

A special thank you to Hairpin Arts Center for extending our exhibition through June 30th and allowing us to have Community Art Days in the space.

Please see our pandemic safety measures at Hairpin below.

LIP = Life in Progress | AnySquared Projects’ LIP20/20 Exhibit at the Hairpin Arts Center showcases work that expresses definitions and/or critiques of progress that provokes, challenges, or illustrates. Through all media, artists represent, examine, analyze, or dissect what is actual progress, what some consider progress, and what is not. LIP 20/20 seeks to answer and explore this concept with our work, our art, in our communities, and as human beings, both in the city and the world. #LIP2020
