We did it! Last night’s “One Image, One Minute: Significant People Present Significant Images” event was a success. The evening raised over $1,300 for Camp Pocket Utopia in upstate New York, and thank you to everyone who donated to this worthwhile project. The children of Rouses Point, New York, and the surrounding North Country also thank you!
We received the following feedback about the event from some of the presenters and attendees.
Adam Simon, artist & presenter:
Last night was genius. What a great event. There wasn’t a single uninteresting minute and what was most interesting was the range of responses.
Louise Fishman, artist & presenter:
It was a pleasure to participate!
Chole Bass, Bushwick artist & attendee:
Congrats on a lovely Norte Maar benefit last night. I am super excited about the Camp Pocket U. project!
