Art For Change will welcome more than 20 artists whose work ranges from sculpture and
photography to graffiti and projection art. Student art will be shown alongside pieces
from world-renowned professionals. Driven by the sincere interest of Ella Baker School
students who asked teachers how they could help the families of Haiti, the two-night
event will encourage the local community to continue supporting the relief efforts for
earthquake victims while also bringing attention to the crisis facing the creative arts
programs Ella Baker School students enjoy today. Seventy percent of the final proceeds
will be sent directly to Partners in Health ( www.standwithhaiti.org ) and the remaining 30
percent will support creative arts education for Ella Baker School students.
