Despite our unconventional, non-commercial approach to contemporary art, we are a for-profit organization. We like money very much. It pays for all sorts of things we need. Since we don't work well within the structure and accountability of the non-profit model we are left to hawk t- shirts and various propaganda to subsidize our ongoing productions. Know that your money will be ill spent on pretty girls, lumber, paint, beer, burritos, dirty magazines, thrift store clothing, more art, tequila and parking tickets. Although we don't turn away donations, throw down a little change and pick up some quality Vital 5 merchandise. You can mail payments or use PayPal to complete your purchase. We thank you for your support.

I (Heart) Art Critics T-shirt

This was a product of our Critics Exhibit, and was just too funny to discontinue. Do you really love art critics because they have been so kind to you, or is it complete sarcasm? Are art critics truly vile creatures or do they need community support and kindness? Certain to get odd looks and strange questions, there are fewer treats than making an art critic squirm with uncertainty and self-consciousness. We make them simply because we can. S, M, L, XL sizes, American Apparel cotton short sleeve.

$20.00 (shipping included, Washington state residence pay tax = $21.66).
