Culture on the Cheap
From The New York Shitty Inbox, Part I: Art Love Japan
This item comes courtesy a chap named Kiyoto. She writes:
The recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan has caused unimaginable damage, but despite the distance we can still aid Japan with help of the New York community. As artists and designers, the organizers of ART LOVE JAPAN were inspired to put together a creative event that could benefit those in need in Japan while also promoting a philanthropic spirit in the neighborhood. At this 3 day event, works donated by artists and designers will be sold for $20 a piece on a first come, first served basis. All proceeds will go towards charities supporting earthquake victims in Japan. Event and charity details are available at www.artlovejapan.com.
ART LOVE JAPAN kicks off on Friday, April 8th with an opening party featuring live music by SHIV HURRAH and POW WOW! The event closes on Sunday, the 10th with a performance by THE BEETS. Asahi Beer, The Natural Wine Company, and Big Tree Bottles have generously provided refreshments for the event. We hope you can come and join us to support Japan!
