A trio of Carnegie Mellon students are raising money for causes aligned with the Black community. 100% of proceeds go to Pittsburgh organizations.
Artists Shori Sims, Ester Petukhova and Steven Montinar — all currently enrolled at Carnegie Mellon University — are making their artwork available for purchase in exchange for a donation to 1Hood Media or the Bukit Bail Fund. A variety of mediums are offered from drawings to zines.
