Support The ActivistArtistA Bay Gates Project


Since 2011 the ABGProjects has provided the community and it's local artists and outdoor curated gallery for all to enjoy. The colorful and vibrate murals allow  visitors, filmmakers, videographers, news agencies, and tour professionals a free backdrop for a variety of purposes from family photos, grauduation photographes, sports teams and even a few music videos free of charge.
The artists that participate donate their time and talent to the project which extends throughout The Boynton Beach Art District, many time working with students and childrens organizations to produce work that educates and enhances our day to day experiences of art.
The funds you donate will go to the cost of paint and paint supplies for the artists, childrens organizations, and schools that participate each year since 2011.

Please join me in raising the funds needed to initiate and complete this years Re-Paint It! of the murals.

Gaynell Gosselin: “State of Emergency” is a performance piece curated by Gaynelle Gosselin set to a poem entitled, “And I Listened” by Shannon Willis.  Scattered among the verses is a reading of names of lives lost to addiction and overdose.  Local actor and recovery advocate Gary Kimble will be performing the verse, while James Fata, local recovery advocate and chapter lead for Young People In Recovery lists the names of those we have lost.   Gaynelle Gosselin, co-Founder of See Change Dance will dance in remembrance.  Community members are invited to participate, holding banners inscribed with a name and a memory of someone they’ve lost to substance use disorder and/or accidental overdose.  The intent is to humanize an epidemic that is currently claiming more than twelve Floridians and more than 144 Americans each and every day. These are people, not statistics.  Their lives matter.  The performance is a call to compassionate action toward stopping this modern day plague.
