Make America Smart Again at the Crafted in LA Art Show

Last week was the opening of Crafted in LA, an exhibition featuring Studio Number One's art that was created for various social causes, including #MakeAmericaSmartAgain! Also, special thanks to our friends at League of Women Voters for coming out to the opening to educate the crowd.

If you're in Los Angeles, check out the gallery at Angel City Brewery before it comes down on April 1. In addition to the #MakeAmericaSmartAgain works, you’ll also be able to see other art by Studio Number One that was created for various marches, social and environmental causes, community projects, and much more!

LIMITED EDITION IDIOCRACY PRINT AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH MONDOTEES.COM 10/9!

To celebrate the cult film Idiocracy's 10th anniversary, MASA founder Shepard Fairey has designed a poster to encapsulate everything we love and fear about the film. This limited edition poster will go on sale on Sunday, Oct. 9 at 5pm to coincide with the second presidential debate and will be sold exclusively through mondotees.com for only 72 hours.

"The seeds of Make America Smart Again were planted when Amanda and I noticed a legitimate correlation between the movie “Idiocracy” and the real dumbing down of American media we were witnessing even ten years ago.

I’ve always felt that art, entertainment, and humor can be the best delivery vehicles for social commentary, so I love the way humor is used in “Idiocracy” to make the social critique more digestible.The movie is a harsh but necessary indictment of the anti-intellectual culture and politics that seem to become the norm more and more every day. The film is great in a cautionary way and has an enjoyable irony being a somewhat low-brow piece of entertainment about the perils of succumbing to a cultural rejection of anything intellectual or high-brow. In other words, the genius of the film is that it may actually get through to the audience it should reach, rather than just preaching to the intellectual elite.”
