“Love Art & Help Japan:” Enjoy great art in NY and donate for Japan.

All donations will go to the disaster relief in Japan through the Japanese Red Cross.

In NYAB News by Aneta Glinkowska 2011-03-19 print

Following the March 11 earthquake and the massive tsunami, with our sister website Tokyo Art Beat operating in Tokyo and friends living all over Japan, NY Art Beat feels ever closer to Japan.

Thus, with a group of good friends we decided to help the disaster victims by collecting donations in art venues and created a few dozen collection boxes to place in galleries, museums, art fairs and auction houses in New York. All donations will go to the disaster relief in Japan through the Japanese Red Cross.

    Hi, Aneta,
    Taka here. Please include us on the list.

    Photos were taken in Tohoku in 2008 and 2010.

    Thank you.

    Hi guys, I was wondering if we could make it international.

    I´m writing this from Fabrica Gallery, Brighton (U.K.), where I happen to work as a space manager and volunteer coordinator.

    We will be opening a new exhibition next April the 3rd and would love to help the victims by displaying a similar box. Any chance we could get sent a box like that? Of course, we would also be displaying a list with all the names of those galleries from the Big Apple collaborating, and those elsewhere.


    Thanks for your time and consideration.

    I am visiting Japan now from last week. Tokyo is very quiet and many shops closed early around 6 p.m. Surprising no single bottle water can be found( completely Zero chance). It will be great to get one box for donation. Would you do me a favor? Please pass the donated money to small organizations in Japan that are directory dealing with disaster victims. As you know many big organizations are not punctual and often high percentages of donated money disappears for employee’s salary and its operation cost – I received an air purifier from Red Cross over 2 months later the 9/11 incident – I am living just 5 blocks away from WTC and I had lost 15% of Lung function, at the time US Gov., Red Cross, American Cancer Foundation, FEMA, New York City etc. etc. all declined any support for the serious health condition and many people died already…

    Interesting to see international community getting so quick in helping japanese people while over 65% of Japanese want to keep the gates closed to foreigners. I have many Japanese friends and they agree about this, but again I lived there so know this is true yet sad.
