Non Toxic Revolution @ THIS Gallery Los AngelesJuxtapoz // Friday, 08 Jul 2011
Tonight, July 8, at THIS Gallery Los Angeles, the Non Toxic Revolution campaign exhibition that Juxtapoz is co-sponsoring, opens, featuring artwork from Shepard Fairey and Studio Number One and photography by Patrick O'Dell.
As we featured on the site last week, "The Keep A Breast Foundation has taken on a new mission: the Non Toxic Revolution movement. Always working to publically inform the masses, their new goal is to inform and educate the youth about the dangers of toxic chemicals in our environment and food supply and therefore the link to breast cancer. The program focuses on prevention by providing alternatives so as to maintain long-term health and well being for people everywhere to make educated decisions.
Partnering with Shepard Fairey’s Studio Number One, Keep A Breast Foundation’s NTR campaign will encourage youngins to embrace prevention as a deterrent to breast cancer and other diseases.
"I have been a supporter of The Keep A Breast Foundation for over 10 years,” stated Fairey. “When they asked me to be a part of their Non Toxic Revolution initiative, I jumped to help create images. Social causes and issues related to art is what drives the Obey Awareness projects, so a graphic program for Keep A Breast to raise awareness about toxic chemicals was a perfect fit. Breast cancer prevention is personal for me because I’ve lost two aunts to breast cancer, and my mother is a breast cancer survivor. I feel privileged to work with KAB and hope that the work my studio, Studio Number One, and I created can be helpful to this important cause."
