NoLA Rising IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE OUR 2012 SIXTH ANNUAL TOYS FOR ART SWAP
For NoLA Rising’s Sixth Annual Installment of It’s Yours, Take It, we would like to continue our seasonal holiday art for toys swap. For five years, we have helped create artwork that is donated to the event in order to raise toys for the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program. A collaboration between the arts community of New Orleans and street artists around the world to help benefit the children of New Orleans.
The premise is simple: Someone coming to the event brings a brand new toy in a box to donate for the children during the holiday season and they get to take a piece of donated artwork with them. The toys are then given to the Marines and they sort it for their annual holiday distribution. All pieces are donated and traded for toys; no money exchanges.
There is no theme on the artwork, so create as you wish.
Our venue is currently unconfirmed, however it will be held within the first two weeks of December. We will confirm dates and location once finalized and inform accordingly.
NoLA Rising is a 501(c)3 and can issue a donation letter to artists who indicate a value to their pieces for tax purposes. Please ensure actual value, in writing and detailing artist, mailing address, piece name and estimated value.
Deadline for sending artwork is December 4th, as always, thank you’re your years of support in helping make this event a success… THE REVOLUTION IS YOU! -Rex
