Artists taking action! Studio jewelers across the country teamed up with Movement Voter Project (MVP) to raise funds to Get Out The Vote in swing states. Using the format of a campaign button, each artist created a brooch that responds to our moment in history.
Our fundraiser has completely sold out and we successfully raised over $5,000 for a fair vote. Thank you donors and supporters! View a gallery of the artwork here - please continue to share these images to help show everyone that their vote is needed and it really matters! We’re asking for a minimum donation of $100 to claim one. Click here to see all the entries.
Follow Arcana Metalwork on Instagram to see behind-the-scenes photos from the artists' benches. If you bought one of the buttons, you can join in and add to the story, too! Please post a selfie wearing your new acquisition and use the hashtag #2020CampaignButtonChallenge to show your support for a fair vote.
Innuendo: Suggestive Jewelry
Dates Extended: August 6 - Oct 4
Virtual Show: Click Here
Arcana Metalwork Gallery presents an intimate collection of suggestive jewelry: works that employ humor, double entendre, and creatively oblique references to sex and sexuality.
(Above, a red plastic Solo cup forms the basis of commentary on femininity, environmentalism, campus life, and consent.)
Due to the need for social distancing, in-person attendance is limited, but we are allowing guests - please use our scheduling assistant to book your visit: https://calendly.com/arcanametalwork
