Art And Response

The Art of Resistance

Throughout history, art has always been at the forefront of change…protest…revolution…and the overthrow of tyrants. Powerful art moves nations, providing a foundation for organizing and dissent. And while dictators and demagogues default to the art of propaganda, ultimately it is the art of resistance that compels people to act – and restore democracy. To quote Picasso,

“Art is not meant to decorate walls. It is an offensive weapon in the defense of the enemy.”

Now, more than ever, America desperately needs the art of resistance in every community. With Donald Trump in the White House, the stakes have never been higher. Our democracy is under attack from oligarchs and Alt-Right nationalists.

WELCOME TO THE ART OF RESISTANCE

The Art of Resistance is dedicated to producing and distributing iconic artwork that exposes injustice, and hypocrisy, countering the alternative facts propagated by persecutors of people and the earth itself.

Diversity Makes America Great

This is not the time for subtly. Michael D’Antuono’s visuals encapsulate messages in a uniquely visceral way, challenging the false pretenses of oppressors with visually inspirational factuality. The Art Of Resistance provide resistors with these graphic weapons against tyranny for demonstrations…protests…and marches.

The times demand each of us use our skills and experience to fight back against nationalists who want to close off America from its proud heritage, while forcing our nation into deep isolation. You may not posses the talent to visually express your outrage or the time to march in support of certain causes, doesn’t mean you’re powerless. You’re voice will be heard by contributing whatever you can to The Art Of Resistance. ANY amount help allow us to produce and distribute artwork in the form of resistance posters and banners to communities across the country looking for support.

Your donation helps us help frontline organizations fighting to protect our fundamental rights – freedom of speech, freedom of the press, a woman’s right to choose, LGBTQ equality, minorities, and immigration advocates – with the powerful weapon of art.

Thank you for your support.
