l.a.Eyeworks is designating proceeds from the worldwide sales of its ‘Wells’ frame, named in honour of journalist and civil rights pioneer Ida B. Wells (1862–1931), to the Art for Justice Fund, which invests in artists and advocates working together to end mass incarceration.
Philanthropist and arts advocate Agnes Gund, who launched the Art for Justice Fund in 2017 as a five-year “catalytic” initiative to address inequality in the USA justice system, said she is grateful for l.a.Eyeworks’ partnership.
“Art for Justice invests in artists and policy advocates who tell the stories of the mothers, fathers and friends who are caught behind bars. Learning other people’s stories makes us more human – giving us the gift of seeing the humanity of people enmeshed in the system and inspiring us all to imagine alternatives to prison,” said Ms Gund.
