A week ago Friday, we went to the exhibit of Change for a Ten, the Art180 fundraiser. There were hundreds, maybe thousands, of ten dollar bill sized pieces of work that had been donated along with a $10 bill. It was very exciting to see all of them displayed on panels. What a great idea and everyone attending seemed to be having a good time. This past Friday, we went up to DC to the fundraiser for the WPA (Washington Project for the Arts) where Mica had interned way back when she was a student. Chuck had been invited to put 4 of his framed glass pieces int he show. Here you see them on the wall of the office of one of the principles in the architecture firm, where the exhibit was located. It was a VERY lively evening, and though this image doesn't show it, the place was so crowded and noisy! There were 4 floors in the building, Art on every floor, along with fancy finger food and beverages. Two very different events, two very good causes, and I hope they both made their monetary goals. In this economic climate, art non-profits will really have to work harder. Ditto for everyone!
