Thursday, July 27 & Friday, July 28, 2006, 5-10pm
ABC No Rio, 156 Rivington St, Lower East Side, NYC
Co-sponsored by Visual Resistance and Family and Friends of Daniel McGowan
Over 100 artists participated in the show, including some of the most respected and prolific street artists working today, including the Barnstormers’ David Ellis, Banksy, Swoon, Borf, Chris Stain, Arofish, Kelly Burns, GoreB, Josh MacPhee, and MOMO, as well as veterans of the landmark political comics journal World War 3 Illustrated, including Eric Drooker, Seth Tobocman, Peter Kuper, Nicole Schulman, and Christopher Cardinale, as well as dozens of other participating artists.
All proceeds from the show benefited the legal fund of local environmental and social justice activist Daniel McGowan, then facing life plus 335 years in prison on federal charges of arson, property destruction, and conspiracy. Daniel was arrested during Operation Backfire, a multi-state sweep of environmental activists who have now been charged with virtually every unsolved earth and animal liberation case in the Northwest.
