Local artists come together to help those in Japan...

With the horrible earthquake and ensuing tsunami that occurred in Japan on March 11 people from all around the world have come together to help our brothers and sisters in the "Land of the Rising Sun." Locally, relief agencies raised money and sent supplies over. Several local scientists have also gone over to assist with the ongoing crises at the Fukushima Nuclear Plant. So with this outpouring of support it was a matter of time before the local arts community came together to pitch in to help.

This evening Blackbird Studios is having a special event for Japan. Japan'D-Aid, a Japanese relief silent auction and live painting event will take place 4pm to 10pm with a silent auction at 8pm. If you have not been to Blackbird Studios the time is now to check out the awesome gaggle of artists that call the space home and it all for a great cause!
