“The main purpose of the holiday is to celebrate, observe and commemorate the color pink for pink’s sake. Pink Week is essentially a non-profit art piece with absolutely no political, religious or social agenda other than pink. Please do not confuse pink week tags with pink ribbons for breast cancer awareness or pink triangles representing homosexual identity. During Pink Week, pink just means pink.
Some find pink week a great excuse to be festive and neighborly without the fuss, stress and stigma attached to more traditional holidays. It can serve as a common ground, a way to reach out and participate. It can be a joyful reminder to live in the present.
Lastly, over the years, Pink Week has been, for many, an important educational opportunity. Pink week illustrates the endless possibility of forms “art” can take and that art is indeed accessible, affordable and needed by all in our contemporary culture.” –pinkweek.org
On view all month at 1104 R St.
Open 7 days a week.
This year marks the 23rd annual pink week. Ruminating upon the number 23, we came across so many possible inspirations, it was Michael Jordan’s number, it’s considered both a “happy” and “fortunate” number, it’s a number related to the birthday paradox, the human sex cell has 23 chromosomes, it is also the sacred number of Eris, the goddess of discord and holds a myriad of meanings in numerology. With all of this in consideration, we’ve come to see 23 as a number both auspicious and uncanny, so our design this year attempts to convey a rather rosy unknown.
