★ Tonight! @coreyhelfordgallery ⭐ is proud to present a special exhibit, "Waxploitation Stories for Ways & Means"
Co-curated by @hihicaro and @waxploitation founder @jeff.antebi , this is the companion exhibition of the children's benefit book project 📖 of the same name with short stories written by world famous musicians such as Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Frank Black, Devendra Banhart, Bon Iver, Alec Empire, Kathleen Hanna, Anna von Hausswolff and illustrated by James Jean, Joe Coleman, Kay & Sunny, Swoon, Herakut, Candice Trip, me 😊❤️ and many others... 🔥
"I've always been interested in songwriters who craft compelling stories to music, and painters who tell stories with a single canvas. Stories for Ways & Means allows me an opportunity to blend both into one project" explains curator Jeff Antebi, who created the book. "the artists I collaborated with are ones who I felt represented Outsiders because children in some ways are also outsiders sometimes, viewing the world of adults around them. It seemed fun to have these artists speaking to kids with their unique points of view"
A portion of proceeds from both the book project and the art show will benefit Room to Read, 826 National, Pencils Of Promise and WAR Child among a number of non -profits working to build schools and educate children around the world.
The exhibit features over two dozen drawings, paintings and illustrations. ⭐️✨
