As a company, we want to make it clear that we stand with those who are hurting and suffering. We see you. We hear you. You matter and your voice is welcome here. We stand with you, because Black lives matter, and the time for silence has passed.
One of our core values is to see and love people as they are. Being different is the exact thing that makes this world beautiful and we celebrate that here. We believe that voices should be heard and art is a fundamental way in which we can communicate our experiences. When we look at the art surrounding people and their personal experiences, it is an opportunity for us to listen, to learn, and to recognize that our lives look different, but our basic needs are all the same: to feel safe, to feel loved, to be seen.
Art is an important form of expression and now more than ever, we need to support each other’s desire to express ourselves in this way. Please, as our world seems so divided, let’s remember that we are stronger together.
As part of our efforts in taking action for change, members of our Let’s Make Art team have created original art pieces available for purchase as digital art printable downloads, with 100% of the proceeds going to a few hand-selected organizations that are personally meaningful to members of the LMA team and leadership. We will be equally dividing the proceeds to be distributed to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the Black Community Fund in Kansas City, and The Marsha P. Johnston Institute
Thank you for time and support
