Opening Reception Friday December 3rd 6-11pm

DATELINE is pleased to host Koko Bayer: Hope Shop - a physical manifestation of Project Spread Hope.

In May of 2020, she began Project Spread Hope, a series of installations created in response to the COVID-19 crisis as a reminder of the power of hope. As the COVID crisis unfolded she wanted to create an image that would help people feel better. “I started thinking about what has that effect on me? Topping the list is the color yellow. I love how it amplifies light and mood. It shows up all the time in my work, usually paired with magenta and called pink lemonade. I love how visible and visually uplifting it is and the way it resonates with viewers. The heart, symbolizing the self or spirit, also shows up often in my work. In this print, it represents love, optimism, and empathy. As does the word hope. I chose my grandfather Herbert Bayer's landmark font universal for its clarity.”

Please join us this Friday evening for a special reception celebrating the opening of the Hope Shop pop-up featuring affordably priced and ready to take home prints, stickers, t-shirts tote bags, souvenirs and other objects d’art created by the artist all benefiting Project Spread Hope. The pop-up lasts all December long.
