IYTI - NoLA 5 // December 11th - Hi-Ho

NoLA Rising is making a call for art for It’s Yours, Take It - NEW ORLEANS 5

 

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

 

For the fifth 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 so many toys I had to move out of my living room until the Marines could pick them up.

As always, there is no theme on artwork donated…create as you wish.

 

This year, the work deadline will be Monday, December 5th, 2011. 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 . Mardi Claw will have the place open and running... We'll announce day of event coming soon...

 

Anyone interested, pls add your name and email me at:

[ nolarising504 @ gmail.com ] so I can send you the current mailing address

 

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 made this a fun experience over the last few rounds…

 

This year, Melrose and Fairfax has already given us some props with the best quote I've seen in a while: "Sticker vandals are the kind of folks who run toy drives." Check it out here: melroseandfairfax.blogspot.com/2011/10/hooked-up-nola-ris...

 

Thanks everyone...THE REVOLUTION IS YOU!

 

Rex
