The Art of Protest is an annual exhibition sponsored by the Women’s Caucus for Art of Georgia. During the 2019 Art of Protest show at the Bakery in Atlanta $400 was raised to support local Atlanta Muralists covering up Squishie Puss Murals and Art throughout Georgia. Ray Geier the name behind Squishie Puss was accused and confirmed to sexually harrassing several artists in the Atlanta Art Community. After allegations rose, the Atlanta Art community came together to cover up all of his work. The Art of Protest was an effort to bring Women, non-binary, gender-nonforming and allies work to the forefront of Atlanta’s art movement and erace the work of the assaulters.
