Tied for Second – We Need Your Vote by 5pm!

On Monday, ACTion Alexandria, with support from the Bruhn-Morris Family Foundation, launched the “Make Us Your Favorite” Contest.  They are awarding grants to the top three organizations that recruit the most supporters to their organization pages on ACTion Alexandria (between Monday, January 14 at 9:00 am and Friday, January 18 at 5:00 pm). The prizes are $1,000 for 1st place, $500 for 2nd place, and $250 for 3rd place.

We’ve dropped to second place but can still win the $1,000 prize! All you have to do is make us your favorite organization on ACTion Alexandria!

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
