During World War I and II, Victory Gardens were grown in the backyards of homes and in public spaces as a civic duty to supplement food supplies as well as serving as an overall morale booster. This kind of coming together inspired our own Victory Garden project. A group of woman artists, curators, gallery owners and printmakers gathered to make artworks for t-shirts, small miracles while tilling the soil of the political landscape this election season.

The Victory Garden print project is available here in a limited edition collector‘s portfolio. T-shirts can also be purchased individually. The shirts were printed on location at the Russell Janis Studio and at Pete's Print Shop down the street. 20% of the proceeds of this project will be donated to GrowNYC's Greenmarket division where funds are used to help make greenmarkets accessible for all income levels.
