Your Vote Matters.

We’re pleased to join institutions across America in partnering with, a nonpartisan initiative to help you Plan Your Vote. Use Plan Your Vote to register to vote, check your absentee status, set up voting reminders, and download image assets to share across social media and beyond. In Massachusetts, the last day to register is October 24, 2020, but you can check your registration no matter where you live. 

Plan Your Vote channels the power of art to encourage voter engagement. They’ve partnered with more than 60 contemporary artists to create images that can be downloaded and shared by anyone. We’re so thrilled to see the work of List Artist, Christine Sun Kim, whose exhibition Off The Charts was on view this past spring as part of the initiative. We hope the silent tune of “Vote Vote Vote” sticks with us all as we quickly approach Tuesday, November 3.

Drawing on Love and Justice
Created by Evelyn Rydz
Submit through November 1, 2020

Leading up to the 2020 elections, this is a call to artists to draw on their creative tools to speak to injustice and make a commitment to draw on love and justice for positive change. We want you to participate. Use any of your creative tools (including and not limited to: cameras, scissors, pencils, yarn, brushes, computer, pens, tape) to reflect not only on what you see, but also to imagine seeing what you want to change. It is a call to draw from both observation and imagination.
