New Call for Prints – and BC Art Dept Artist winners!

December 7, 2014

December 7, 2014
The Tax Benefits Project (under the auspices of the Women’s Center for Education and Career Advancement – WCECA) put out a “Call for Prints” to Brooklyn College art students several months ago. 12 posters won the competition. I’m presenting them here.
They’ll be displayed during the 2015 tax season in libraries, health clinics, and thrift shops, i.e., places frequented by the poorest of the poor NYC’ers, to convince them to come to designated soup kitchens, fill out a simple form, and receive a $62.50 New York State tax refund.
The plan is that after tax season is over, April 15, 2015, we’ll expand the “Call for Prints,” gather more art concerning poverty and social inequity in NYC, and have a gallery show. Expect that announcement in March or April.
