Michael Krouse is pleased to announce

For this show at Madrone Art Bar, Michael is throwing a stone of optimism at the divisions that have dominated the news throughout the past year. The simple message of MORE LOVE LESS HATE has been turned into a graphic image that will be used in a repetitive pattern to create a wall drawing spanning the entire length of the main wall 43ft long by 10ft high. In addition, there will be prints and posters given out for people to take home and share the message.

In the front window, there will be 2 custom designed bicycles. Both furthering the concept of MORE LOVE LESS HATE. The bikes will be raffled off on Christmas DAY. 100% of the proceeds from the bike raffle will benefit victims of the Las Vegas Shooting and The Northern California Fire Victims
