Introducing “Hashtag Equality” at Art All Night

Posted by C Scheftic on 2019/04/27

Off and on over the past couple of months (the delays are another story completely!), I’ve been working on a new series of pieces I’m calling Hashtag Equality.

Now I could write that as #equality. That does nicely emphasize the equality part, but minimizes the hashtag. And in these designs, the hashtag itself is an important element!

Look at a hashtag: two verical lines and two horizontal lines. Look at an equal sign: two horizontal lines. Ta da: Design inspiration!!! Use a hashtag itself to present ideas about equality!

The first public presentation of my Hashtag Equality series will be an installation at the wonderful local celebration of community art known as Art All Night. It’s this weekend, from 4 pm Saturday through 2 pm on Sunday. I hope I’ll see some folks I know there! I plan to go down with some friends for a while on Saturday night. After that, I’ll decide what time to return on Sunday, but I’ll definitely go back (snapping pictures of the art is often easier then). The show itself closes at 2 pm but, if you entered a piece, you’ll also be able to find me there at checkout: I volunteered to help with that until 4 pm!

(I had hoped that another Hashtag Equality installation would be at the Spring Regional Show at the North Hills Art Center, but I missed getting it there on time… The show is still worth seeing, for all the other entries in it!)

You’ll also be able to see some pieces at the May Open Houses in my studio. There are big “events” in the building on the First and Third Saturdays of May, so I’ll have two Open Houses then (and skip the often-second saturday one for that month).

Somewhere during all of that I’ll post more information about the concept, along with photos of a few of the pieces. But this is just a teaser: come to Art All Night, if you can, for the unveiling!

(Second teaser: The idea for the series was inspired by what I might call a near-omission, or perhaps a mis-attribution, in the Washington Post last January discussing the Suffragettes. Rather than complain, I just decided I’d have to correct the story and, while at it, update their idea for our current times by incorporating the hashtag!)
