3:00 a.m. Sunday, December 9, a tradegy occurred.  The building that housed THE IMAGO ART GROUP burned to the ground. No one was hurt, but nothing was salvagable.  The fire was caused by arson.

At least 15 artists lost artwork, art supplies and personal effects.  Some lost all their artistic creations of a lifetime and do not have the supplies to begin creating again. 

These artists need help.   Artists-In-Action is seeking to work with other art groups and artists to create a fundraiser -- concert? and auction?-- to help these artists get back on their feet.  

If you are a member of another art group and would like to work hand in hand in this effort, if you are an artist who would like to donate artwork for the auction or a performer who would to like to participate in a fundraiser contact Pat Luefan, Executive Director, Artists in Action This email address is being protected from spambots.
