As an activist/public artist, I’ve spent two decades working to drive systemic change. But when COVID hit, I found myself sheltering-in-place with my kiddos, feeling utterly powerless. We decided to heal ourselves by adopting two Russian Blue kittens. One day, as we watched Des and Das shred a cardboard scratcher, my daughter grumbled: “Mama, I so wish we could scratch 2020.” With that spark, our humble kitchen table business was born.
Since then, we’ve been scratching back with public art projects across the country. We spent winter 2021 in Georgia, launching Vote Tree, an interactive public art installation to help flip the Senate. Our GOTV effort helped our partner Block Power deliver 24.4K votes! Check out our live-art activation featured in Reverend Warnock’s IG feed the night before the election, as well as the Season 6 premiere of Showtime’s The Circus.
During these challenging times, we’re dedicated to supporting change agents and our heroic front-line workers, donating to COVID relief, cat rescues, and the progressive causes you care about with Every. Single. Scratch. While your cat is having a BLAST, know that you’re helping us create the world that lives up to your ideals.
Onward. Onward. Onward
