Join Rema Ghuloum and ECAA to Help Support
Sister Outsider Relief Grant & The Underground Museum

In a committed effort towards supporting earnest structural change brought about by the current uprising against systemic racism, police brutality and social and economic injustice; the gallery will be donating 100% of the proceeds of Rema Ghuloum's Ether Drawing (5/2/2020) and match the proceeds and contribute them two worthy organizations equally —The Underground Museum and The Free Black Woman's Library. The drawing may be purchased on Artsy before June 30 and is subject to prior sale.

The Sister Outsider Relief Grant is a mutual aid fund initiative launched by The Free Black Women’s Library which was first established as a mobile pop-up library and community for black women. First sparked in New York City by OlaRonke Akinmowo it has expanded communities across the US. The Library creates safe spaces to cultivate an appreciation for black female writers and communities of color. The Sister Outsider Relief Project offers a one-time cash grant of $250 to single Black mother artists, writers and cultural workers, and to date has distributed more than 100 grants. Those interested in donating money to support this grant, can CashApp $TFBWL or Venmo @ OlaRonk

The Underground Museum (The UM) is a non-profit arts and culture center operating out of three converted storefronts in the Arlington Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles. It brings art and art experiences normally reserved for major institutions to diverse audiences for free. The UM upholds the belief that art is an essential part of a vibrant, just, and healthy society. It serves its neighbors, a low-to-moderate income community, and LA’s thriving creative community, with unwavering conviction that increasing access to art will inspire, educate, and transform lives.
