Call for Artwork: NYC Benefit Gallery Show for Daniel McGowan

Call for Artwork: NYC Benefit Gallery Show for Daniel McGowan

June 23, 2006 at ABC No Rio

156 Rivington Street, between Clinton and Suffolk Street in the Lower East Side

Co-sponsored by Visual Resistance and Family and Friends of Daniel McGowan

Deadline: June 1, 2006


On December 7th, my friend was arrested at his workplace by federal marshals. The

friend I know as a tireless activist and a funny, generous, caring person was ripped

from his friends and family without warning and held without bail in federal prison,

facing multiple felony charges and life in prison.

I met Daniel McGowan during the buildup to the protests against the Republican

National Convention in New York. The Visual Resistance crew was organizing the No

RNC Poster Project and Daniel was our first ally. In the time since, Daniel has

been a personal friend to all of us in VR and to many more in the larger New York

activist community. His constant smile and good humor belied his selfless devotion

to making this world a better place.

And on December 9th, he was disappeared. Daniel was extradited to Oregon and held

without bail for two months on charges whose statute of limitations were close to

expiring. His arrest came as part of a massive government crackdown on the radical

environmental movement which many are referring to as the �Green Scare.� His

arrest left the community in shock.

Daniel has pled not guilt to all charges. Although he is currently out on bail, he

faces a lengthy and extremely expensive trial. His family and friends have been

scrambling to raise funds and organize a defense team.

Simply put, he needs our help, and we need yours.

We are planning a one-night gallery show and silent art auction on June 23rd at ABC

No Rio to help pay for Daniel�s legal defense. We are asking artists who are

committed to social justice and political activism to contribute artwork. Some art

will also be sold through our website. All proceeds will go to help pay Daniel�s

legal costs.

Any artwork you can contribute will be a huge help, and we appreciate your

generosity in advance. The work in the show will encompass a myriad of themes,

styles, and techniques. Work that deals with the issues involved in the Green Scare

are appreciated, but not required.

Please contact us if you are interested in donating artwork! We are more than happy

to work with you on your terms and can cover incidental costs such as shipping. We

can pick up artwork in the New York City area � email

for a mailing address.

For more information on Daniel�s case and the Green Scare, see:


Below is an official statement about the case released by Family and Friends of

Daniel McGowan:

Daniel McGowan is an environmental and social justice activist, unjustly arrested

and charged in federal court on multiple counts of arson, property destruction, and

conspiracy, relating to two incidents that occurred in Oregon in 2001. Daniel has

asserted his innocence by pleading not guilty to all charges. He is facing a minimum

of life in prison if convicted.

Daniel is from New York, and has been an active member of the community, working on

diverse projects such as military counter-recruitment, demonstrations against the

Republican National Convention, Really Really Free Markets, and supporting political

prisoners such as Jeff "Free" Luers and others. Daniel was a graduate student

earning a Master's degree in acupuncture and was working at, a

nonprofit group that helps women in domestic abuse situations navigate the legal

system, which is where he was arrested by federal marshals on December 7, 2005.

Daniel had originally been indicted separately, but his arrest comes in the context

of a well-coordinated, multi-state sweep of numerous activists by the federal

government, who has charged the individuals with practically every earth and animal

liberation case left unsolved in the Northwest. Many of the charges, including

Daniel's, are for cases whose statute of limitations were about to expire.

In order to help Daniel, his family and friends have created a support network

(Family and Friends of Daniel McGowan) to assist in raising funds for Daniel's legal

representation, which is expected to be hundreds of thousands of dollars. We are

asking friends and supporters to donate what they can to help Daniel's family with

the legal bills.
