Arts for Art Fundraiser

This just in from Art for Art, the Vision Fest/RUCMA people. Even if you don’t want to go, if you want to help to get another venue with stellar music that will help fill the Tonic void, make a donation. It doesn’t have to be large, you won’t miss $10 or $20 and will benefit in the end anyway. You can contribute right here.



We need your help to build a Center for Innovative Arts in the Lower East Side. Come celebrate art and innovation with us at the Arts for Art Gala on December 15 at the Angel Orensanz Foundation, 172 Norfolk Street. Join us for a festive evening of stellar performances and help us launch this project that will enrich the growing arts culture of Downtown Manhattan!

Artists of all ages and disciplines have come together with the local community to create this vibrant place for mentoring the next generation of innovators, performing groundbreaking work and advancing the distinctive heritage of downtown arts. Your support will enable the first crucial step: identifying a building, in the vicinity of the Bowery, as a permanent home for the Center.

Arts for Arts has received a $100,000 Capital Reserve Challenge grant from the Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust. Help us take best advantage of that generous award; we have until December 31, 2008 to do so. If you can't join us at the Gala, please consider a donation at www.visionfestival.org.

Now more than ever, nurturing imagination and inspiration in New York City is a vital necessity!
