“Disaster doesn't sort us out by preferences; it drags us into emergencies that require we act, and act altruistically, bravely, and with initiative in order to survive or save the aid and pleasure are linked, that the ties that bind are grounds for celebration as well as obligation.” 
― Rebecca Solnit, A Paradise Built in Hell: The Extraordinary Communities That Arise in Disaster

Join us this Friday for a one night fundraiser and silent art auction to benefit relief and long term efforts in Mexico and Puerto Rico.

The Chicago Artists Coalition has kindly donated their entire space for this event!
