Charlie Foxtrot, art opening, LITM

Sean Lugo's First Solo Show at LITM!
april 5, 7 - 10 pm, LITM, 140 Newark ave

Artists Statement:
With age I, like most, have come to realize that humans are what create this chaos, and they are more animal then animals. Most [humans] should be caged up, so I paint the animal as a reflection of ourselves, our cruelty to each other and other animals, and our near descent to a world that does not support true free expression. Through my work I try to deconstruct America and the rest of the world through the guise of animals. It addresses current events, stereotypes, and underlying threads of drugs, sex, and corruption that underpin American society, to which the text provides clues to content and interpretation.

day of silence

 Friday, April 15 · 8:00am - 3:30pm, Henry Snyder Highschool, Bergen Ave

Sponsored by GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, the National Day of Silence is a day of action in which students across the country take some form of a vow of silence to call attention to the silencing effect of anti-LGBT bullying and harassment in schools. Through their activities students can speak out against harassment and organize for change for their schools and communities.

The Day of Silence is a Tool for Change. Organizing a Day of Silence (DOS) activity or event can be a positive tool for change-both personally and community-wide. By taking a vow of silence, you're making a powerful statement about the important issue of anti-LGBT bullying. When you organize others to join you that message becomes louder and louder. You can use this attention as a building block in your plans for larger action
