Americans for the Arts Action Fund has launched an exciting and educational ArtsVote campaign with artwork designed by renowned contemporary artist and Americans for the Arts Artists Committee member Shepard Fairey. Entitled “Make Your Vote Count,” the focus of the campaign is to educate artists and arts advocate voters on the important and clear steps they need to take to make their vote count and to do it EARLY. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, many states are dramatically changing the way citizens can vote with confusing new rules, new deadlines, and new certification systems.
Arts Action Fund has created State Voter Factsheets for all 50 states and 6 territories so that artists and art advocates have the tools they need to make wise choices this November. Download the Kansas ArtsVote Pledge one-pager for the latest election rules and deadlines to help voters to check the status of their registrations, request an absentee ballot (if applicable), learn when early voting begins, and find exactly where to vote.
Once the pledge is taken, signers will be provided exclusive access to high resolution, downloadable images of the bold, new ArtsVote graphic. Exclusively designed for the Arts Action Fund, Shepard Fairey’s ArtsVote artwork is in both English and Spanish and comes in a variety of sizes for social media, websites, and Zoom virtual backgrounds.
