Holy Moley! Success! Gratitude! News!

November 29, 2017

The Hornraiser is over, and praise to the goddess we did it! 155 Donors, 146% Funded, $21,935 ! We are truly humbled, overjoyed, uplifted, and enriched by this experience and the outpouring of support we received from y'all. Your support has not just been financial, it has been a validation of our belief in a more diverse, more inclusive, more political, more engaged art world.


In the next coming weeks we are hunkering down and working hard on finishing the preparations for our first exhibition, Notes on Sugar, and the accompanying publication. We will keep you posted with an opening reception date and news about the Campos-Pons visit, both of which will happen before the end of February, 2018. After that, more news about the subsequent exhibition and programs!


Also, keep following us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for shared articles, news, and commentary about curatorial activism, feminism, critical race studies, and more! The Neon Queen Collective is here to stay!


Love and appreciation, in abundance and joy,


Your friends,


The Neon Queens

Halfway to our goal with one week left!

November 21, 2017

Dear Darling Friends of the Queens,


We've hit the countdown mark to the end of the month and just have one week left!! That means all systems go, full steam ahead, we've got to work!


Exhibition planning is in the final stages, dates are booked, plans are made! Help us pull this off by sharing our Hornraiser page everywhere you can possibly think of! If you haven't already donated, or even if you have, consider giving a little more.


Above all, THANK YOU! We couldn't do this without you, and we can't wait to show you the hard work we've been putting your donations towards so far.


Yours truly,


The Neon Queen Collective

Oh my goodness Queens!!

October 31, 2017

In our first 24 hours we've raised over $3,000 already! Thank you so so much friends, together we are making it happen! If we can hit $5000, 33%  of our goal, by the end of the day, the University will give us free paid advertising on social media. So spread the word! Guilt your friends! We can do it!
