Resurrect Haiti | An Art Event this weekend in Norwood

Resurrect Haiti is a two-evening art event to raise money for the urgent humanitarian crises in Haiti. Offerings from a variety of artists include over 60 pieces of small affordable artwork. 9" pieces are free with a minimum donation of $75 dollars each. Enjoy snacks and beverages, live music and like-minded friends. This event is a practical and meaningful way to help those in pain and thus fulfill the desire to stand with those who are suffering so much loss.

A handful of underwriters have generously agreed to underwrite all the expenses of the event, covering all the manufacturing costs of printing and framing the photographs. This means that 100% of all sales will go directly to the relief effort. We have the names of and relationships with at least four organizations on the ground doing work there.

Organizations that will distribute the benefits from this event include:
-International Sports Alliance
-Matthew 25 Ministries
-Restavek Freedom

When: Resurrect Haiti will be held for two consecutive nights on Friday and Saturday evenings, January 22 & 23, 7:00 - 10:00 pm.

Where: Resurrect Haiti will be held simultaneously at two adjacent locations:
1. The Speckled Bird Café at 1766 Mills Avenue
2. 1801 Mills

Who: A large portion of the work are photographs of Haiti from Cincinnati artists and photographers Jon Willis and Owen A Brock, taken while on recent humanitarian trips to Haiti. We are also excited that a number of other artists have offered their work as well, so there should be a tremendous offering of work on display.
