Statement from the Artist Manny Chinacat Tang

Support your local artists! From hiring an artist, purchasing original artworks, to attending art shows and following them on social media, these are all good ways of showing support for local artists in our area. Often times when people talk about small businesses they don’t see arts or artists being in the picture. But the truth is artists are very much a part of it, and by supporting local artists you’re not only helping artists to pay bills but you’re also helping our city to bounce back and thrive. For this holiday season, you can pick up this tee I designed for Rockford Area Arts Council as a holiday gift or simply wear it to show your support out loud. All proceeds goes to Rockford Area Arts Council, an alley to artists in our area.
