Take Me I’m Yours
The Jewish Museum raised money on Kickstarter for an installation called Take Me I’m Yours. 42 Artists participated in the show creating over 400,000+ artworks for people to take with them keeping up with the concept art for all.
We backed the show which gave us early access and a nice spread from Russ and Daughters.

We will receive one of these posters when the show closes. The black piece at the end of the poster did say Hillary Clinton but they had to block it out because non-profit organizations (such as the Jewish Museum) can not show any political affiliations or they would be in danger of losing their 5013C status. This is also a piece by Jonathan Horowitz.
Please God by Claire Fontaine reflecting that blind faith may be the only way to feed hope.
The show was a nod to the artist Feliz Gonzalez-Torres whose piece which is an endless supply of tiny red, silver and blue candies that can be installed however one wants (this piece is on loan from the Met).
There were a variety of posters throughout that were descriptions of words from #Gift, #Economy, #Market.

Great show. Highly recommend going. It is especially great for kids.
