All Power to All People
- Visual Arts
At approximately 20 feet high, artist Hank Willis Thomas’ All Power to All People will make its debut in Black Rock City NV -Burning Man 2018 , “the world’s largest Arts show." The original All Power to All People Afro pick sculpture was 8-foot tall and temporarily installed across from City Hall in Philadelphia in fall 2017.
After its debut this summer, All Power to All People will return home to NYC for a public exhibition.
The piece will stand as a symbol of community, strength, perseverance, comradeship, equal justice and belonging. Conceived of by conceptual artist Hank Willis Thomas and crafted by master fabricator Jeff Schomberg, the sculpture will be interactive and a beacon for night riders.
Burning Man Arts believes in this project and has given us a small grant for this installation. However, in order to fully realize this project and make sure that it is safe, we need your support! Constructing a 20-foot architectural structure in the middle of the desert is a massive undertaking, and we need help raising an additional $35,000 by July 22, 2018.We are incredibly grateful for the many ways artists bring people together, and we hope you will share in our commitment to bringing this project to life.Please share this call to action with your family, friends and networks.On behalf of the entire collective, we thank you for your commitment to ensuring that artists will always matter, and for your steadfast and generous support.
