NoLA Rising is making a call for art for It’s Yours, Take It (NoLA 4)

NoLA Rising has a long history of distributing artwork at no cost to the New Orleans area. After hurricane Katrina, it was a guiding mission of Rex to replace street signs and paint signs of hope for those who had returned to the city. One person made a movement of dozens of artists.

For the fourth installment of New Orleans’ It’s Yours, Take it, Rex would like to continue the practice of a holiday art swap. For the third year in a row, artwork has been created and sent in for a toy for art swap to raise toys for the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program. The premise is simple: Someone brings a brand new toy in a box to donate to children and they get to take a piece of art with them. The toys are then donated to the Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program for their annual distribution.

Last year, we again had well over 120 toys donated for the cause and had a small garrison of Marines there to support the cause.
As always, I encourage free and open themes for the work to allow you the freedom to work as you wish.

This year, the work deadline will be Wednesday, December 8th, 2010. If you're local to the New Orleans area, you can bring artwork by the Hi-Ho Lounge (2239 Saint Claude Avenue) in the St. Claude Arts District on Saturday, December 11th from 12-6. Mardi Claw will have the place open and running...

Anyone interested, pls add your name and email me at:
[ nolarising504 @ gmail.com ]

Again, huge thanks to everyone who’s made this a fun experience over the last few rounds…

Hey everyone...lot's of great things came in and I'm truly appreciative of it. We had an excellent turn-out and I tried to get as many pics of the folks taking the art as I could. If I missed something, I apologize. We had a few pieces left over from last year that were put out also. Once I get some more info on the quantity of toys we collected, I'll post it. Have had to work today and haven't had a chance to go through. My kitchen is so full, I can't even walk in the eating area...it's waist high with bags of toys.

Thanks so much for helping make this a very successful IYTI and as always, am proud to be able to facilitate the movement down here in NoLA.

Hey NoLA, NoLA Rising is still looking for a place to host it's 6th annual art swap/toy donation. We'd prefer kid friendly, but will entertain ideas. Also artists, still looking for donations :-) For more information:
