Art Project to help Haitian schoolchildren

With all the more recent natural disasters being in the forefront of the news, I've still been wondering what's being done in and for Haiti now. I was happy to discover this event at Rogue Space Chelsea. If you're in or near Manhattan, try to check it out.

One month after losing their home, school and every possession to Haiti’s earthquake, 100 children from the Maranatha School and Orphanage came together and created 209 masterpieces of art. The project was the initiative of Rogue Space Gallery owner and documentary filmmaker Kevin O’Hanlon. O’Hanlon collaborated with artist Richard Laurent and the Life For The World team to bring canvasses and painting supplies to Maranatha which has been the home and school to over 100 children since 2002. The children have been sleeping outside, on the streets or under tents since the earthquake.
