Earthquake and Print Show

klu naga

These past few months I've been working on a woodcut for a print exchange with kids from Booker T. Washington, a school in South Africa, and an adult printmaking group that meets at Booker T. most Tuesday nights. The goal of the project is to publish a bilingual coloring book for elementary school kids in the Qinghai region of Tibet, right where the earthquake occurred two weeks ago. Since the quake happened when school was in session a number of the casualties were the very children for whom we've been making the coloring book. There will be a show at the Crow Collection of Asian Art on May 13th from 5:30 to 7:00 exhibiting the work and raising money with the goal of getting the coloring book to those kids still surviving. Anyone in the Dallas area should try to make it out if they can.
