One of the more colorful libraries you might ever encounter…
From inflatable oil pipelines, to a 12ft globe and lifesized orcas, to Overpass Light Brigade LED light panels for activist scrabble, we’ve got props! Fellow artists and activists have joined forces to create colorful imagery that have added an element of spectacle and theater to our actions over the years. Now, we’re making some of our favorites from our collection of imagery and puppets available to you and your community to borrow.
Organize a Human Orca Mural
Fill out our Imagery Request form to bring a Human Orca Mural to your community! Organize a giant Human Orca Mural in support of the Southern Resident Orcas. The Human Orca Mural is a great way for a community to come together in solidarity action for orca and salmon, by keeping the issue of supporting and saving the orca and salmon visible by creating photographic content for media attention. We can come together to help people feel their connection to each other, the orca, salmon and this beautiful, precious and fragile place. Orca mother Tahlequah (J-35) carried her dead calf for 17 days and 1000 miles in a powerful "tour of grief" that drew international attention summer of 2018. Help us build on the incredible courage and spirit of Tahlequah. Borrow this Imagery !
