The T-shirt has been a medium of communication since the ‘70s, and now it will also benefit public schools arts programs. DUH Shirts, which launches its website and gallery on Saturday, June 8, will be donating a portion of proceeds from the sale of artistic T-shirts.
The event is at Curveline Space Gallery, 1577 Colorado Blvd., Los Angeles (Eagle Rock) on June 8 from 6 to 10 p.m. It features artists Greg Andrade and Thomas Figgins. All-American refreshments, hot dogs and beer, will be served.
The ultimate goal of the company is to support arts in the public schools, “to strengthen our national consensus through education and insight around important issues and foster and promote an even more informed and compassionate America through creativity. To provide a non-partisan debate platform for hot button issues in order to promote more solidarity and unity in our nation – the good old U S of A,” according to their press release.
Students will be able to enter their own designs and submissions will be juried. Winning designs will become part of the DUH Shirts T-shirt line. Shirts will be made in the USA and printed by Ellen’s Silkscreening in South Pasadena. Submissions are to be made through the website, which has not yet launched. For more information, call (626) 833-5998.
