Support artists and get rewarded!


Graphic artist Chucha Marquez (pictured above at the We're Still Working opening reception) creates work that celebrates the beauty, resistance and resilience of Black and brown and queer and trans folks. When they partnered with LYRIC LGBT Youth Center to create youth-designed prints for We're Still Working: The Art of Sex Work as part of the 2016–2017 SOMArts Curatorial Residency season, we knew they would be the perfect fit to design the latest in SOMArts style.

If you pledge $25 to SOMArts' Kickstarter campaign to support the next season of groundbreaking Curatorial Residency exhibitions, we will show our appreciation by sending you a custom-designed SOMArts t-shirt. We hope you'll agree that Chucha's design for SOMArts' new t-shirt perfectly captures our work at the heart of intersectional, community-based art and culture.
Be the first of your friends to rock SOMArts' new style!

About the 2017–2018 SOMArts Curatorial Residency

We are working to bring to life the next season of exhibitions and projects by our curators-in-residence, including: 
  • Game Recognize Game: A participatory exhibition inviting audiences to reimagine the possibility of sport as an emancipatory project, curated by Dania Cabello. 
  • The Third Muslim: Queer and Trans* Muslim narratives of resistance and resilience, curated by Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Yas Ahmed. 
  • Diasporic Alchemy: A multi-sensory exhibition, transforming ancestral traditions into ritual futurisms through the co-creation of new global mythos, curated by Louis Chinn and missTANGQ.
Now more than ever, it’s crucial to support exhibitions like these that provide a platform for diverse artists to tell their own stories.

Please join us in supporting these visionary artists!
