Help Haiti at Albuquerque's Visiones Gallery with Art, Food & Music on Jan. 22

From Working Classroom:
Last summer, Albuquerque Journal photojournalist and Haitian native Adolphe Pierre-Louis shared his craft with 10 young artists at Working Classroom. Their work together is featured in "From The Studio To The Street," a photo exhibit opening with a public reception Friday, January 22, from 6:00-8:00 PM in Working Classrooms Visiones Gallery at 115 Gold SW in downtown Albuquerque.

In the wake of the horrendous aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti, the reception will now be a fundraising event for survivors with.

  • Live music by Racine Kreyol
  • Haitian food and drinks catered by Haitian chef, Fofo
  • Silent auction of Haitian art
  • Photos by Adolphe Pierre Louis and Working Classroom students
  • Proceeds from sales and donations will benefit Doctors Without Borders and The International Red Cross

This is an opportunity for Albuquerque residents to come out and show their support for the people of Haiti, enjoy Haitian culture, support student artists AND purchase affordable art for a good cause.
