"Turning Our Backs on Hunger"
Eastridge's piece, which will be in SOS ART 2008

 

 

 


  • SOS ART 2008
    May 30 - June 8, 2008
    Eastridge is pleased to be taking part in
    this year's SOS ART 2008 (program below) in Cincinnati.  As always, this exhibition is an art show and event of sociopolitical expressions for peace and justice.  This year, Eastridge's topic is HUNGER.  The statistics for hunger are rising in our very own communities, and while many of us must spend time figuring out how to afford daily living costs (gas, food, rent, etc.), oftentimes those who need help the most (by placing meals on their tables) are forgotten.  Eastridge invites anyone who attends the exhibition, to take action by placing a canned good/s on the floor below her piece in the gallery.  At the conclusion of the exhibition, all donations will be delivered to the Freestore Foodbank in Cincinnati.
