As part of the “First on 1st Neighborhood Art + Music Walk” sponsored by the Pink Line Project and North Capitol Main Street, CIVILIAN ART PROJECTS has cooked up a summer show for 87FLORIDA:

Organized in conjunction with the New York City based School of Visual Arts MFA 2009 class who instigated a series of exhibitions and projects across the country called “A New Currency,” Civilian asked the following artists to create new or existing work that shared a common spirit of abundance.

In new and imaginative ways, artists in the exhibition interpret art and ideas as resources with a currency unlimited by monetary definition.

To say the work is political would be an understatement. To paraphrase her aunt at the opening: "Hey Heidi why don’t you tell us where you stand politically?" But it is more than that, it is about being an artist, being a mother, being a partner, and being a feminist in these ever so uncertain times
