Torrance Art Museum: Fundraiser for the Japanese Red Cross

The Torrance Art Museum is proud to present:
A fundraiser event for the Japanese Red Cross
Saturday 26th March, 12 noon – 9pm at the Torrance Art Museum

Calling ALL artists
On Saturday 26th March the Torrance Art Museum invites you to participate in a fundraiser for Japan. We will place tables in the patio area and ask that artists who wish to support the relief efforts for Japan bring a small artwork to donate. All artworks will be priced at $50, cash only- all of the funds raised will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross.
Works can be delivered to the museum from 12 noon onwards and will be available to buy immediately, with anything sold removed there and then by the buyer. The fundraiser will continue throughout the Opening Reception, from 6-9pm, of the exhibition Gateway Japan – an exhibition of Japanese and Japanese American artists (see below). Please come and show your support, meet the artists who have flown in from Tokyo for this event as well as ourlocal artists and the artists who are donating to this event – and for the small amount of $50 walk away with an original work of art, knowing that a great cause was served too.
Any unsold works will be placed online for sale after the opening reception on a dedicated website.
The Torrance Art Museum is located at 3320 Civic Center Drive in Torrance.
TAM is a program of the Cultural Services Division of the City of Torrance Community Services Department.
