Art For Galveston's Art's Sake At Lawndale
Four feet of floodwater destroyed artwork, the plumbing and a/c systems, and much of the walls. It'll take close to $850,000 to repair it all and bring modern art back to the island.
It's a situation that calls for The Art Guys.
The Guys will be hosting a "pass the hat" fundraiser tomorrow night at the Lawndale Arts Center.
The Arts Center was certainly one of the neater places on the Strand; if they can raise the cash (about $300,000 has been raised so far), plans are to open by next summer.
The event at Lawndale is free and lasts from 5:30 pm til 7:30 pm.
