Re Cap: My solo art show " LAYERED "

A day that I so anticipated, had my heart beating very fast, and all along was sadden by the travasty that has occured a couple of days past of the Haiti earth quake, and the many who has lost their lives. Mixed feelings swerled my head and heart, as I entered Fresthetics. I felt it was nessary for me to utilized my solo art show, to channel the audience/viewers their energy and attention to Liz Whitney, a PR from YELE Haiti who works under Wyclef, to help me gather donations for the Haiti people in need.

(All donations will be gathered and transported to a LISTED donation location in Brooklyn, with the help of the Fresthetic galleria crew, if it wasnt for them in the begin with, I wouldnt had this chance to help out or showcase my works! Thanks Mike, thanks Randy!)

Footage below was taken by TASTY KEISH of the Bondfire family.

I didnt want to start my solo show in a serious mode, but I felt it was right to only give credit and also the proper attention of the critical situation that has been on my heart and mind over Haiti. As soon as I saw the massive crowd settling in, I directed the Dj to lower the volume and requested Liz Whitney to stand near me to begin a brief insight and tips to help out in our ways where we can.

All the donations that was aquired by those that so happend to donate at my solo art show, will be collected and placed in one of these following places for a drop off. Thanks to Star mc Rae, and Liz Withney for extending their insights in this crutial moment of dispare in Haiti.
