Vice Mayor Dances with Community -Clearwater Residents, Artists in Action and Community Leaders Unite for a Good Cause
Clearwater FL, May 2008 - For many years, LaTanya Holmes has been concerned for the safety of her grandchildren, nieces and nephews who live with her in the neighborhood which surrounds Plaza Park on Pennsylvania Avenue, one block west of Martin Luther King Jr Ave in Clearwater. She would not let the children play in the beautiful park for fear of the known drug users who loitered there. At the Artists in
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.
