The dolls and their pony allies won’t stop in their battle on behalf of the 99%. They participate in a massive workers strike against Walmart on Black Friday in a big way. They unfurled a banner on the outside.
Then they did a flash mob inside the store right in the toy aisle.

The dolls and one of their new pony allies survey the damage done to Dollotti Park in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. All of the dolls in the Occupy the Dollhouse movement are safe and sound. However they are actively trying to raise awareness of those living in New York and New Jersey whose lives have been impacted by both Hurricane Sandy and the Nor’easter that struck the same areas one week alter. Here is how you can help the victims of these twin storms rebuild their lives.
If you are able to volunteer directly, Occupy Wall Street has started an Occupy Sandy program which, according to this Slate.com article, has even outperformed the American Red Cross in certain situations.
If you live too far away from the devastated areas, here are some organizations you can send money and any other material things that these groups may ask for.
Charity Navigator’s page on ethical charities (which is valuable to help weed out the scammers who are now out in full force raising money when little to none of the funds raised will really go to the people impacted by Hurricane Sandy).
The Nation’s page on How to Help the Victims of Hurricane Sandy.
The protesting dolls have been laying low in Dollotti Park throughout the summer while creating new alliances in order to help further the cause of the 99%. On the first anniversary of Occupy Wall Street in New York (which started the worldwide Occupy movement), the dolls finalize their new alliance with a street action involving a stencil, spray paint, and concrete.

Artomatic is over but Occupy the Dollhouse still goes on. Hmmmmm, what’s this?
Artomatic ended last night but you can still purchase copies of the prints that were displayed at the Occupy the Dollhouse exhibit at that show in my Etsy shop for the same $10 price that I charged at Artomatic.
You can also buy larger higher quality prints (with sizes as large as 20 inches x 30 inches and printed on high quality material like canvas) from Deviant Art right here.

Today is the last day that you can visit Artomatic in person before it closes down for good. My own Occupy the Dollhouse exhibit is located on the 10th floor in room 166 and this video I shot tries to show where it’s located in relation to the elevators on that floor. For directions, details, and a schedule of events, visit the Artomatic site.
For my Occupy the Dollhouse exhibit at Artomatic, I decided to include some photos that I took from the actual Occupation sites just so visitors can see my inspiration for the series. This piece is a collage of photos I took of Occupy Baltimore. Here is my label description of this piece.
Location: McKeldin Plaza in the Inner Harbor
Current Status as of May 18, 2012: Last December the local authorities have evicted Occupy Baltimore, removed their tents, and banned tents and camping in McKeldin Plaza. While Occupy Baltimore will still hold General Assemblies and other meetings and events at McKeldin Plaza, the group has changed its focus from camping outside to working on demonstrations, teach-ins, and other actions that focuses on the issues affecting the 99% who live in Baltimore.
Now through June 23 you’ll be able to see and purchase print versions of these photos at Artomatic 2012 in Crystal City, Virginia. The Occupy the Dollhouse exhibit is located on the 10th floor in room 166.
