"If you're not upset, you're not paying attention. After the election in 2016 doing protest and resistance work was the only way I could stay sane and feel like I was doing something positive." - Marilyn Minter
Tucked away on a secret spreadsheet, we at Art in Ad Places have a wish list of artists that we dream of working with. Marilyn Minter has been on that list since day one. Already a living legend, her protest work since the 2016 election has exemplified what artists can do in this moment. This week, we’re thrilled to install two of her iconic RESIST posters in Manhattan.
To echo Minter, there are so many ways to resist: voting, donating to campaigns and non-profits, organizing, protesting, volunteering… Find the ways that work for you, get active, stay active, stay strong, and resist.
