2020 Campaign Button Challenge

Fundraiser Opens Sept 3rd

Artists are taking action! Studio jewelers across the country are teaming 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.

On September 3rd, at 9am, our fundraiser will go live and donors will have the opportunity to secure one of these unique pieces of political art for their very own. We’ve put in the time and talent to make the art. We’re asking for a minimum donation of $100 to claim one.  Click here for more details!

 

Follow Arcana Metalwork on Instagram to see a sneak preview of the entries!  We're using the hashtag #2020CampaignButtonChallenge to tie them all together.

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
