this is what a slut looks like

Our Mission Statement
As a part of SlutWalk San Diego,
We are proudly taking a stand against sexual violence and the bully tactics of victim blaming.We believe that all of us, regardless of gender, need to recognize that by allowing the publicly shaming of victims by using their appearance or sexual history against them, it creates a society that accepts and justifies acts of sexual violence.We recognize that we need to end not only the acts of sexual violence, but the excuses that allow that violence to continue.We believe in the simple concept that everyone deserves to be respected for who they are.

Virginia Maksymowicz | Sculptor (5 months ago)
What a surprise for me to come across these photos! The bricks did not belong to George Winne. I made this clay sculpture in 1976 when I was a grad student in Visual Arts at UCSD. The other sculpture in the memorial grove is by Michael Todd, who used to be on the faculty. I am delighted that the sculpture has been cared for over these many years.

The Blacklist Art & Film Festival

The Blacklist experiment continues*

What started out as a way for a group of friends to display their unique talents to the local community has evolved into a multi-media spectacle. We pride ourselves on celebrating fearless and unapologetic creativity that goes beyond the formula of mainstream culture as a means to showcase the World’s emerging talents and unknown innovators of Art, Film, and Rock n’ Roll. This event of cerebral debauchery represents an effort to inspire the next wave of artists with original and unconventional content.

As filmmakers and artists we have the ability and the opportunity to inspire, and in many ways, the obligation. There is a lack of originality and authenticity in today’s popular culture and it’s not because there is a lack of original ideas, but a lacking desire to embrace them. We have been overly supplied with formulaic music, movies and opinion, so much that now the dissenters from formula have almost no chance of making it into the mainstream culture.

Rinse your mind of mainstream slime.
