OK. OK. Breathe. Relax. Because there's also this.Tomorrow evening we're heading uptown to the Rio II Gallery on Riverside Drive in Harlem for the opening of the Immigrants' Art Exhibit 2009. It's sponsored by a range of groups including the May 1st Coalition for Immigrant Rights, Taller Experimental de Arte, Arts Horizons, and the Rebel Diaz Arts Collective. From the promotional material:
Art has transformative and healing powers. It can trascend barriers, borders and differences. The exhibit provides an opportunity for immigrant artists to respond artistically to this time in history, in which immigrants are being persecuted and deprived of their rights.Looking forward to it.
