July 2012 Artist: Deborah Pohl

This month’s featured artist presents ‘The Pill Project’. All proceeds of art sold will go to Planned Parenthood.

The Pill Project

The Pill Project is an artwork in support of reproductive rights. Each abstract circle is a “pill” symbolizing contraception. People are asked to buy a pill to enact their rights to safe and affordable contraception. By engaging with the artwork and buying a pill the audience is actively showing their support for reproductive freedom. All proceeds are going to Planned Parenthood.
