After dropping a T-shirt in support of Wikipedia, Advisory Board Crystals has now teamed up with non-profit organization, The Little Sun Foundation founded by artist Olafur Eliasson for another collaborative T-shirt, to bring light to the most vulnerable communities.

ADVISORY: 100% percent of the proceeds from this shirt will be donated to @littlesunenergy. The Little Sun Foundation is a not-for-profit organization founded by artist @studioolafureliasson to bring light to the most vulnerable communities – especially urgent given the record-high number of displaced persons around the world. Little Sun raises funds to bring solar light and phone charging to refugee camps and to students. They also offer programmes on solar energy that broaden the reach of climate education. The design for the shirt is built off of Olafur’s concept of the tripod of the art institution, artists (Abc. and Olafur), and the audience joining forces for a stellar and solar tomorrow. The collaborative shirt touches on the sustainable development goals most relevant to the little suns efforts. When read from top to bottom the layout functions similarly to a flow chart leading back to the goal of working together for a stellar tomorrow. The Abc. + Olafur Eliasson collaborative t-shirt for the Little Sun Foundation is available exclusively at the Marciano Art Foundation in Los Angeles. The release overlaps with the final weekend of Olafur’s installation “Reality Projector.” Visitation for the Marciano Art Foundation is free but requires a timed reservation made online. As tickets are sold out through September, you may email the foundation below to order a t-shirt which will grant you access for pickup. For those not located in Los Angeles, you may also place an order via email. The email is: [email protected] The shirt features screen print, puff print, matte and holographic vinyl, the Abc. “Authenticity Label,” signature pull-tab and numbered Abc. “Information Label.” 80 of the total 108 shirts will be made available to the public. We believe there are many ways to change the world. This is one of them. Thank you for your contribution to the Little Sun foundation.

The Little Sun Foundation raises funds to bring solar light and phone charging to refugee camps and to students, and this special edition tee touches on the sustainable development goals most relevant to the foundation’s efforts, as well as being centered around Olafur’s concept of the “tripod of the art institution.”

When you read the graphic on the shirt from top to bottom, composed of a mixture of screen print, puff print, matte and holographic vinyl processes, the layout functions similarly to a flow chart leading back to the goal of working together for a stellar tomorrow. Additional details include Abc.’s “authenticity label,” pull-tab detailing and a numbered Abc. “information label.”

Priced at $125 USD, 80 of the 108 total shirts will be made available to the public exclusively at the Marciano Art Foundation in Los Angeles. All proceeds from this shirt will be donated to the Little Sun Foundation.
