THE PIRANHA SHOP, 1022 1ST AVENUE SOUTH, SEATTLE, WA
Our third auction Truths are Lies, Lies are Truth was inspired by backwards times. A time when political party affiliation seemingly outweighed the facts, humanity, and basic human decency.

NOVEMBER 9TH, 2017, AT THE PIRANHA SHOP, 1022 1ST AVENUE SOUTH, SEATTLE, WA
Artists For Progress held our second silent auction, “Art of the Steal,” in support of the ACLU and Planned Parenthood on November 9th, 2017.
“Art of the Steal” was a rallying cry to fight hate and intolerance with creativity and hope. It was a resistance to silence, a mobilization to speak out rather than be numbed. In support of causes that fight for the marginalized and oppressed, near $25k was raised, to keep progressing towards truth, inclusiveness, acceptance, tolerance, and love.
Over 30 artists, returning and new, were featured, including: Alyson Provax, Ashley Armitage, Charles Peterson, Kyler Martz, Jolinda Linden, Laura Cassidy, Lynae Cook, Jennifer Ament, Kendrick Brinson, Andrew Stewart, Aran Goyoaga, Barry Ament, Baso Fibonacci, Becca Fuhrman, Brandon Roache, Cheyenne Randall, Dominic Nieri, Duffy Leg, Elizabeth Rudge, Jaque Fragua, Kate Neckel, LeLeita McKill, Mary Ann Carter, Marcial Meza, Rachel Demy, Serrah Russell, Shogo Ota, Victor Melendez, Taylor Colledge, Dorothee Brand, Melissa Kagerer, and more.
