Let There Be – A Collaborative Project Benefiting The Alliance of Idaho & Lee Pesky Learning Center

Please join us to celebrate a new year and all its possibilities. The Let There Be project was dreamed up by Alan and Wendy Pesky to benefit The Alliance of Idaho and the Lee Pesky Learning Center, both Idaho-based nonprofits. The Alliance of Idaho protects the human rights of immigrants, and Lee Pesky Learning Center is committed to addressing existing educational opportunity gaps through its work with students, families, schools, and communities to understand and overcome obstacles to learning.

Alan Pesky loved the final message of Draw Your Weapons, a book by Writer Sarah Sentilles, who is also the Executive Director of The Alliance. “Might we turn those words into art?” he asked. And the Let There Be project was born.

The project was a collaborative effort. Artist Anna Fidler painted three different alphabets, working to capture the spirit of Sentilles’s writing. Artist Heather Watkins then transformed Fidler’s hand painted words into a digital design. And artist Mika Aono Boyd screen printed the limited series of one hundred images.

The first one hundred people to donate $1,000 will receive one of the limited series of 100 posters and a copy of Draw Your Weapons. The tax-deductible donations will benefit The Alliance and Lee Pesky Learning Center. Each poster measures 30 inches by 22 inches and will be signed by Boyd, Fidler, Sentilles, and Watkins. Framed editions are also available for an additional cost. A smaller printed version of the poster will be sent to those who donate 46 dollars, in celebration of the inauguration.
