"The Audacity of Desperation is an art exhibition expressing and unraveling states of political desperation. Activists, artists and very concerned people have created posters, manifestos, DIY kits, postcards, stickers, buttons and multi-media projects for free distribution.

Traveling through the country, this show creates space to build relationships and foster dialogue around the desperate state of affairs laid by a disastrous administration, complacent congressional leaders and a un-empowered populus." (From the Audacity of Desperation)
