ARTmostfierce is back in the benefit circle band wagon . I will be a volunteer for the first shift of the event 10AM-2PM .For only $75.00 if you are early enough (I mean be there by 9:00 AM on the waiting line) you might end up with a unique work from an artist and it might even be a Cindy Sherman one
Come by and I will help you guess what you will buy.
You can buy as many as you want!

 After seeing the movie Milk, I totally got inspired and just finished curating which might me the February 09 on line web galleryVisual AIDS show. In 2009 , I will make a priority to contribute and volunteer more for AIDS related causes.This event is a lot of fun!

So... I am starting the year with a bang doing good things for others...perhaps, you should show up and do something for others too and in the process, get an original 5 x7 artwork  . It is a win-win. Also if you like to volunteer for it, you still can so please contact me or Nick Santos @ Visual AIDS
Don't miss it!

See you all there!

If they let me do a shorter shift, I'll be there to volunteer. Sounds like a great event!
