HIV - Angeles en Mexico

$820 of $1,200 goal

Raised by 19 people in 3 months
I got so lost in my pain that the only way out was to tear down literal walls of paper. The pressure was unbearable and the seed had to crack. I knew I had to either succumb to the soil or break free. I searched for angels to guide me in faces between the layers of aged advertisements in the streets of Mexico City DF. In each discovery, I was reminded the angels were always there.


The series Angeles En México is a direct expression of those moments of hope where the angels stepped in to guide me to the next thing.


The exhibition of 20 framed photos opening June 18th, 2019 at Centro Cultural Emilio Carballido will be for sale to benefit INSPIRA. The second exhibition will be at Centro Cultural Emilio Carballido on July 20th in conjunction with Aids Society International 2019. This fundraiser is to cover the expenses of printing, framing, promotion, and costs associated with launching the two exhibitions. 


All sales of the framed pieces and limited edition of 20 images, 3 sizes, signed, and numbered will go directly to Inspiracambio for use in rapid HIV testing and medical treatments for at-risk communities. The potential to raise $2,400,000 pesos to support the work of InspiraCambio could affect so many lives for the better.


The final 20 images for exhibition are shown here and prices listed.

Me perdí tanto en mi dolor que la única salida era derribar las paredes de papel. La presión era insoportable y la semilla tenía que romperse. Sabía que tenía que sucumbir a la tierra o liberarme. Busqué ángeles que me guiaran en los rostros entre las capas de viejos anuncios en las calles de la Ciudad de México DF. En cada descubrimiento, se me recordaba que los ángeles siempre estaban allí.


La serie Angeles En México es una expresión directa de esos momentos de esperanza en los que los ángeles intervinieron para guiarme hacia lo siguiente.


La exposición de 20 fotos enmarcadas que se inaugura el 18 de junio de 2019 en el Centro Cultural Emilio Carballido estará a la venta a beneficio de INSPIRA. La segunda exposición será en el Centro Cultural Emilio Carballido el 20 de julio en conjunto con Aids Society International 2019. Este evento para recaudar fondos cubrirá los gastos de impresión, enmarcado, promoción y los costos asociados con el lanzamiento de las dos exposiciones.  


Todas las ventas de las piezas enmarcadas y edición limitada de 20 imágenes, 3 tamaños, firmadas y numeradas, irán directamente a Inspiracambio para su uso en pruebas rápidas de VIH y tratamientos médicos para comunidades en riesgo. El potencial de recaudar 2,400,000 pesos para apoyar el trabajo de InspiraCambio podría afectar tantas vidas para mejor.


Las 20 imágenes finales para la exposición se muestran aquí y los precios están listados.

Well, two or three trips later to the framer to sign and resign, number, and flip the images that were upside down. JAJA. The framed photos are ready for exhibition thanks to all our donors. If we can get a little closer we will be able to print postcards with information on purchasing prints online outside the gallery. That is where we will garner the most sales with 3 different sizes, limited edition of 10, signed, and numbered.

Install is delayed due to the construction (see the previous update) but space will be ready. Install June 17th and opening June 18th. Woosh. A little more time to finish this mural. Thanks for your support. Please share with your friends and family.

Dropping off the prints to be framed at Laguinilla this morning. A sigh of relief another step accomplished. Lots to do but I can do it at a comfortable pace.

The funds raised have gotten us to this point. The next and last push is to pay for transport, various things like nails, placards, and promo cards to guide people to purchase prints off-site of the show.

If you can help even with $5 and pushing it out to your friends, then please 'share' and DONATE.

This is what we are dealing with here in Mexico and why this fundraiser is so very important.

#AMLO - pretends to be about human rights and pay good lip service to that end, but you are just another rich politician standing on the backs of the poor to raise your voice. DISGUSTING! #PENAAMLO #SHAME #PENA #AMLOESCHAME #PENDEJO #LIDERNOMAMES

Got to see the space for the June exhibition (there are two - June and another in July for Aids International Society 2019). Wow it is huge. Have to plan this one out but it looks like I can show a few paintings along with the work for sale to Inspira. And yes, the space will be complete before the install. :-)

Let's do it folks! Final push! Help us make this one a great benefit!
