On the heels of the United Against Hate posters made by Wolff and graphic designer Lexi Visco in 2017, new VOTE! posters were generated by the duo with funding from a Civic Arts grant from the City of Berkeley to encourage greater voter participation in the 2018 midterms and 2020 elections.
20,000 copies of the posters (with versions in English and Spanish) were printed by Autumn Press in early October 2018 and sent to over 13 states with funds crowdsourced for shipping. The posters are visible in windows across the country and free pdf files are available at www.yourvotecampaign.com for download to print from home or send to a printer individually.
Future Chorus will be performing at the opening of All Together Now at the Fine Arts Gallery at San Francisco State University this fall. The exhibition looks at art and activism from the perspective of those who seek to use their artistic practice to create networks, a sense of mutual respect, belonging, and a deeper sense of history.

Another Country Studios is the shared workspace of Lena Wolff and her wife artist and illustrator Miriam Klein Stahl. Every year in December the studio is open for a holiday open house with new large and small works available, holiday ephemera and handmade goods. This year the duo is joined by artist Jaime Knight, flower arranger Haia Sophia of Canopy Floral, with spirits by Fieldworks Collaborative. The event is a partial fundraiser for Sister District, an organization dedicated to turning red states blue in 2018 and beyond. Join us for one day only, on December 17th, 2017.
Taking a cue from the title of an album by the Quails put out on Mr. Lady records in 2003, THE SONG IS LOVE is a month-long residency at the De Young Museum which presents a series of projects that affirm the transformative power of art and collaboration to generate empathy and the sublime in times of political disaster. From October 31 to December 3, 2017, Wolff’s studio will be set up as an intimate space within the museum, where new work will be developed in drawing, collage and fabric, along with multiple collaborations with fellow artists, musicians, designers, craftspeople and the public. THE SONG IS LOVE upholds the power of collective creative activity as an essential wave of resistance at this critical time in the history of the United States -a power is capable of turning the tide away from hate, toward wider affirmative forces of love, imagination and inclusivity.
As part of the residency, Wolff's project FUTURE CHORUS, will perform songs for the political moment at the museum Saturday., December 2nd at 2pm.
