Life Is Art head honcho James Echols explains why he is soliciting donations of art for the June 2 Miami Beach Chamber Gala. An excerpt: "You know, normally I am not really in favor of asking artists to donate work. I know how much effort each piece takes, and the usual return is very low. However, this Gala includes approximately 1200 of the heavy-hitters from Miami Beach and around South Florida. These are people with real money, many of whom are avid art lovers. This really is great exposure. Plus, it benefits the Miami Beach Education Foundation, helping to support our youth."
The Circus Basura is coming to town ... straight to F.A.T. Village on May 26 and it looks like they could use some help.
