ART FOR HAITI
The 2010 Haiti earthquake on Tuesday January 12 has been described as a catastrophic magnitude earthquake. News of how this already struggling country is suffering is continually highlighted in every news media and yet the extent of the devastation is not known and probably will not be for many months to come.
There is no doubt that the people of Haiti need help, immediately and for some time to come. Several organizations and groups have already announced initiatives in this regard and the Artists of Trinidad and Tobago will not be left out. To this end and on behalf of the Artists, Che Lovelace and In2Art are collaborating to organize a silent auction titled ART FOR HAITI for the people of Haiti. On exhibit and for purchase will be original works of art that our professional, emerging and novice artists have provided for this fund-raiser.
