Studio SoHy is a relatively new art gallery that opened its doors in Hyattsville, Maryland. On February 18, 2017 it held a reception for its newest exhibit, which was done in partnership with the Pyramid Atlantic Art Center and Soul & Ink. The exhibit is based on the recent Women’s March on Washington and it’s also being done in conjunction with the many follow-up events that are being held all over the U.S. that coincides with the first 100 days of the Trump Administration.
Studio SoHy is a small gallery that’s located next to the Vigilante Coffee Company.
Here is the entrance to Studio SoHy itself.
The gallery is small so it didn’t take too many people to fill it up.
The exhibit consisted of protest signs, some of which were actually carried in the march itself while others were created more recently.
Wine was served among the protest signs.
Soul & Ink were printing out posters and t-shirts for sale that said “Resist Hate, Assist Love.”
As part of the reception, visitors were encouraged to write postcards to elected officials.
There were two main focus of this postcard writing campaign. One was for Maryland Governor Larry Hogan asking him to oppose President Trump’s immigration ban. The other was for the Office of Government Ethics asking that they release all information about any conflicts of interests regarding President Trump’s business holdings.
Here is one of the postcards that I wrote while I was at the event.
