The Faded Line to support Conscious Alliance with an art print release

The Faded Line will release three highly anticipated art prints by artists Emek and Brad Klausen. The prints entitled Cybercycle, Cyberman, and Cloak & Veil are signed & numbered by the respective artist and screen printed on high quality Stonehenge fine art paper 250gsm.

Conscious Alliance, a Boulder-based nonprofit organization, provides healthy food to some of the poorest communities in the USA, most of which reside on American Indian reservations. One of CA's main goals is to involve young people, high school and college age, in ending hunger through music and art. The money raised by The Faded Line will directly benefit the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.

Pine Ridge has a population of about 40,000 and is roughly the size of Connecticut. They have an unemployment rate over 80% and about 97% of the population lives below Federal poverty levels. Healthcare is limited, schools are under-funded, and the teenage suicide rate is 150% higher than the national average. During the school year, students are provided with two government subsidized meals per day. With summer quickly approaching, families have to come up with an extra 10 meals a week per child. Due to the lack of resources, many families struggle to make ends meet, which leads to their children going unfed. Learn more about Conscious Alliance at www.consciousalliance.org.

The Boulder-based company, The Faded Line, partners with artists and illustrators that have made their mark on the musical community as the creative force behind legendary album covers, rock posters and published prints. The concept behind The Faded Line is to bring the artists to the forefront from behind the shadow of a band’s name, give them the recognition they deserve, and allow the masses to ‘wear’ the art.

The on-sale is Fri May 7 at 2:00 PM MST at www.thefadedline.com.
