For the fifth installment of New Orleans’ It’s Yours, Take it, Rex would yet again like to continue the practice of a holiday art swap. For the fifth year in a row, artwork has been created and sent in for a toy for art swap to raise toys for the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program and similar programs in the New Orleans area. The premise is simple: Someone brings a brand new toy in a box to donate to children and they get to take a piece of art with them. The toys are then donated to programs for their annual holiday distribution.
The paint parties have been going on since that pesky storm passed by our city and our levees failed due to (well, you know)... To bolster the NoLA Rising offerings to people who bring toys in a box, we are having a paint party in conjunction with New Orleans Fringe Festival. The artwork created during the art event will be stored until the day of the art swap at the Hi-Ho Lounge.

IYTI - NoLA 5 - Art for Toys Swap Holiday Kick Ass Extravaganza (& shit like that), originally uploaded by dingler1109.
NoLA Rising is making a call for art for It’s Yours, Take It - NEW ORLEANS 5
NoLA Rising has a long history of distributing artwork at no cost to the New Orleans area.
For the fifth installment of New Orleans’ It’s Yours, Take it, Rex would yet again like to continue the practice of a holiday art swap. For the fourth year in a row, artwork has been created and sent in for a toy for art swap to raise toys for the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program and similar programs in the New Orleans area. The premise is simple: Someone brings a brand new toy in a box to donate to children and they get to take a piece of art with them. The toys are then donated to programs for their annual holiday distribution.
Last year, we had so many toys I had to move out of my living room until the Marines could pick them up.
As always, there is no theme on artwork donated…create as you wish.
This year, the work deadline will be Monday, December 5th, 2011. If you're local to the New Orleans area, you can bring artwork by the Hi-Ho Lounge (2239 Saint Claude Avenue) in the St. Claude Arts District . Mardi Claw will have the place open and running... We'll announce day of event coming soon...
Anyone interested, pls add your name and email me at:
[ nolarising504 @ gmail.com ] so I can send you the current mailing address
NoLA Rising is a 501(c)3 and can issue a donation letter to artists who indicate a value to their donated pieces for tax purposes. Please ensure actual value - in writing detailing artist, mailing address, piece name and estimated value.
Again, huge thanks to everyone who’s made this a fun experience over the last few rounds…
This year, Melrose and Fairfax has already given us some props with the best quote I've seen in a while: "Sticker vandals are the kind of folks who run toy drives." Check it out here: melroseandfairfax.blogspot.com/2011/10/hooked-up-nola-ris...
Thanks everyone...THE REVOLUTION IS YOU!

Review by Kat Bergeron: "For those of you looking for true New Orleans art by a true New Orleans artist, I can think of no greater recommendation than this book. Written by a man, a legend, and a true New Orleanian, Rex Dingler's ReXism takes you through the street art and mentality of a city on the rise. Check it out. Then buy it. Then buy it for your friends."

K+6...our anniversary. There's been a lot of promise offered up over the years. We've made some inroads here and there, but we're back to being how we were. Or so we tell ourselves. Here's hoping for the best in all of us to overcome the worst...

"In New Orleans, we have a tradition of pinning money to the birthday boy or girl. For my upcoming birthday party, I want to put that money to good use and donate it to some great causes, including Kiva.org, Our School at Blair Grocery, and now - my dear friend Lindsey who was supposed to bake her delicious gourmet cupcakes but got badly injured in a bike accident a few days ago.
I made these pins with their giant safety pins on the front - much easier than trying to keep a tiny safety pin pinned to your shirt and also let people add money to it! Plus they're cute!"

Click on the picture and then check out the links. It's amazing the disparity in the punishments doled out between someone caught doing graffiti and then someone killing a person.
Which is the greater crime? Killing or street art?
