It's Yours, Take It Call for Art for NoLA Rising Toys for Tots drive

NoLA Rising is making a call for art for It's Yours, Take It, NoLA 3

In the past, we've done an on the street IYTI for general passers-by and an indoor IYTI intended to raise toys for the last holiday season. This year, we'd like to continue that tone and have an IYTI where people can bring brand new toys in a box for a piece of art. The toys will then be donated to the Marine Corps' Toys for Tots program for their annual toy distribution.

I encourage a free and open theme to allow you the freedom to work as you wish, so no set themes

This year, the work deadline will be Monday, December 7th because I plan on holding the open air event on December 11th in collaboration with a music show expecting high attendance. The music will be by the SoulRebels and DJ SoulSister at Tipitina's.

We'll be holding a paint party at Fringe Festival in the side yard at XO Studios (2833 Dauphine) on November 15th to add to the collection for the toy drive!

Anyone interested, pls email me...

Thanks for helping to make another successful IYTI!
