"If You Like This, You'll Love That," is a virtual chain reaction-style show that came to fruition this spring and was inspired by making human connections during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Collar Works team each invited an artist to choose a work to include and requested they ask a fellow artist they admire to participate. And so on. Over a month, the chain has grown to include over 100 artists from across the country and globe!
This show was initially structured as Collar Works' annual fundraiser. Given the critical movement in support of Black lives and BIPOC communities, all proceeds to Collar Works will be donated to the following organizations: Marsha P. Johnson Institute (NYC), Troy for Black Lives / Justice for Dahmeek (Troy, NY), Albany Bail Fund for Black Lives (Albany, NY), and Soul Fire Farm (Petersburg, NY).
The virtual exhibit and sale will go live on Monday, June 15 with a $10,000 goal. The Collar Works Board of Directors and Staff will match the first $1,000 within 24 hours to kick-start the fundraiser. We hope you will enjoy the show, find a work of art to add to your collection and join us in supporting these vital organizations committed to ending racism and injustice.
All works are available to be purchased online. Shipping and handling included.
