In Houston, Matt Adams (president of the Visual Arts Alliance, art blogger and collector), called on artists to take action by participating in a one-night-only juried exhibit on April 29 titled "The First 100 Days: Artists Respond," which was curated by Adams. It appears that artists far and wide are "mad as hell" and they're "not going to take this anymore!" For more information, visit thefirst100daysartistsrespond.com.
