Repaint Hate & AIGA NWA
A Visual Response to Racism & Misogyny
Every fall Bikes, Blues, and BBQ (one of the largest motorcycle rallies in the country) comes to Northwest Arkansas. Some attendees and vendors bring visual messages of racist and misogynist content. In order to counter this messaging, I worked with local sign painter and activist Olivia Trimble to bring AIGA NWA and Repaint Hate together. This work consisted of organizing volunteer artists to create a series of yard signs, pop-up murals, and t-shirts. I also designed one of the yard signs (rainbow mopeds).
I also worked to secure a sponsor to print 300 yard signs that were given out free to the community. During the rally, we set up a booth to display and sell merchandise, with all of the proceeds going to fund the Repaint Hate organization.
