NoLA Rising is making a call for art for It’s Yours, Take It - NEW ORLEANS 6

NoLA Rising has a long history of distributing artwork at no cost to the New Orleans area.

For the sixth installment of New Orleans’ It’s Yours, Take it, Rex would yet again like to continue the practice of a holiday art swap. For the fifth 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 and similar programs in the New Orleans area. 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 programs for their annual holiday distribution.

Last year, we had a great presence and there were so many toys donated that the Marines had to haul them off in a huge truck.

This year, the work deadline will be Wednesday, December 5th, 2012. If you're local to the New Orleans area, you can bring artwork the day of or get in touch with Rex in advance at the below email address. We are still working out details on the venue and finalized date and will update this post as soon as we have it.

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

The current mailing address is somewhere more reliable than my city address (location, location) and can send to the below address:

Rex Dingler / IYTI
39280 Traino Landing Road
Ponchatoula, LA 70454
USA

NoLA Rising is a 501(c)3 and can issue a donation letter to artists who indicate a value to their donated pieces for tax purposes. Please ensure actual value - in writing detailing artist, mailing address, piece name and estimated value.

Again, huge thanks to everyone who’s helped make this an amazing event every year we've done it. Me and the folks at NoLA Rising appreciate all your hard work and effort and your continued support of the people of New Orleans!

Thanks again and remember: THE REVOLUTION IS YOU!

Rex
