Live Through This: A Suicide Awareness and Prevention Charity Event
Here at Art Machine Productions, Suicide Awareness and Prevention are incredibly important topics that are close to our hearts. You may recall our April 6, 2012 art show "Still Fly" which benefited The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention as well as The Trevor Project. On May 6, 2016 we're teaming up with someone who does awareness a little differently. Live Through This is a photography project that showcases portraits of suicide attempt survivors alongside their stories.
We hope to shine a light on the topic once more with this special event. Join us May 6, 2016 for a special walk-in tattoo event at Art Machine Productions from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. featuring $50 - $150 flash specials. From 7 p.m. - 10 p.m. we'll be hosting a first Friday art gallery event featuring the artwork of many talented local (and some not so local) artists who have graciously donated the sale of their artwork to fund the Live Through This Project. Don't worry! We'll have some snacks and beverages for you to graze on while you're visiting the gallery that evening! All proceeds of the tattoo and art gallery event benefit Live Through This.
