Immediate Press Release


December17, 2011- We’d like to announce that we are holding a second exhibition of “We Are One”, to assist with the ongoing earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis relief efforts in Japan.


It’s been approximately eight months since the tragedy in northeastern Japan.  The Japanese people are still struggling to find peace of mind as they face an on-going nuclear crisis, and many people in the disaster areas still do not have homes. Some experts say it will take more than 10 years for a full recovery of Japan.  We feel strongly that it is necessary to continuously support Japan with a long-term perspective.


The “We Are One- Japan Earthquake and Nuclear Crisis Relief Exhibition” held at the New York Institute of Technology on April 11th, 2011 was a big success.  Over 100 artists contributed their time and artworks, and the joint efforts created an unforgettable experience for all artists and volunteers.  We were able to raise over $17,000, of which 100% of the proceeds went to the Japan Society Earthquake Relief Fund. Thank you again for making that exhibition a reality.


Camel Art Space has generously volunteered their exhibition space for us, and the second “We Are One” exhibition is scheduled for December 17th, Saturday, 2011.


The work will be sold at an affordable price, of $100-200, to ensure that many works will be bought during the one-day event.   100% of the proceeds will go to the Japan Society Earthquake Relief Fund, a reputable fund that works diligently at ensuring all the money goes to the places in Japan where it is needed most.


We sincerely hope you will support us and come to WE ARE ONE.
