Dear Artists and Art Workers,
Inspired by the recent visit of artist Martha Rosler, and the New York group’s activities, we urge you to help form a Los Angeles branch of Artists Against the War. Please see their website at www.aawnyc.org
We would love for you all to be a part of it. As the first event of Artists Against the War LA, we want to have a strong presence in the important Anti-war Rally scheduled for this Saturday, March 17. Please bring posters and banners that say “LA Artists Against the War”. The MTA is right by the rally site (beginning and ending) so getting there should be easy. We can’t wait to see you there! Please forward this email to others.
(Please add your name to the top of this list. This is a cooperative group effort.)
