I AM KXNDNESS

Burnet Gallery in Le Meridian Chambers Hotel · 901 Hennepin Avenue Minneapolis, MN 55403

I AM KXNDNESS is an art show in which money is of no value. All of the artworks being shown will be available only by performing acts of kindness – ranging from playing with animals at a shelter to volunteering at a nursing home to assisting a gallery during open hours. Each work of art will have a designated kindness chosen by the artist. To purchase the works the patron will put their name into a bowl next to the work of art they are wishing to obtain. At the end of the evening a name will be drawn from each bowl and that is the person who will receive the artwork once the designated act of kindness is completed. I AM KXNDNESS is the brainchild of Sarah Edwards. Edwards is driven by helping & connecting ideas and people that she believes in. Sarah is fueled by the entrepreneurial energy and collaborative spirit of the Twin Cities. She is described as a Fashion Stylist, Connector, Event Producer, Philanthropist and a promoter Minneapolis/St. Paul talent. As the founder of I AM MPLS!, I AM ST. PAUL and I AM Kindness, she imagines a new environment in which we are closer connected to resources and people that can make our dreams a reality. The show is curated by artist Jesse Draxler. Draxler is an a fine artist, illustrator, designer, and art director living and working between Minneapolis, MN and Los Angeles, CA. Originally from a small town in rural Wisconsin Jesse’s work is considered a dark mirror reflecting popular culture, ideas of beauty, the infinity of space, and the conflicting inner dialogues within us all. Through a close relationship with the fashion industry and internet culture Jesse has had the opportunity to work with clients such as The New York Times, Target, and Prince, as well as being featured in publications and books such as Dazed and Confused Magazine, Dansk Magazine, and The Age of Collage, a comprehensive book of the world’s leading collage artists.
