A statement from the artist:

The Pledge

Four eyes, freckle face, funny lisp, awkwardness
Creator-face, buck teeth, kinky-hair, crooked stare
Pig nose, brace face, geek, nerd, skank, slut, blubber butt

Our past sticks & stones
Become our future microphones

Two fingers, crab hand

Our past embarrassments
Become our future accomplishments

Flipper fin, pincher claw

I pledge to remember our dark past
I pledge to embrace our enlightened future.

There will be artist appearances at the Stein Gallery January through April. Each Saturday, artists from the exhibition will be in the Gallery from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.  Others will make appearances throughout the day on Weaver Free Saturdays, and on Tuesday evenings during the exhibition.
