LCAD students make art for Japan
When students at the Laguna College of Art & Design heard about the tsunami and earthquake that devastated Japan, they wanted to find a way to help.
On Sunday, the public is welcome to visit LCAD's main campus for a special art exhibit that benefits the country during the college's "Best of the Best" exhibit.
All the pieces on display — such as paintings and prints — are for sale and the proceeds will go to the American Red Cross' Japanese Disaster Relief Fund.
The college bought 200 small canvases for their students and all majors were encouraged to get involved with the project.
The works range from $30 to $70.
"The creative contributions of the LCAD community and the generous participation of the local community in purchasing the art will enable us to show support and solidarity with the people of Japan in this time of distress," Academic Affairs Vice President Hélène Garrison said in a statement. "We hope you will join us for the reception, buy some art, and support a truly worthy cause."
