85for85 is a passion project I created to raise funds through artistic expression for Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments, following the current administration’s decision to drastically reduce the size of both monuments.

I gathered over 50 artists that shared their works on and love for these lands and designed a 100-page book full of art — photos, poems, paintings, drawings, collage and essay – dedicated to the monuments. Over two limited-edition print runs, we raised $6,600.
