Suzanne Nichols learned her love for the arts as a child in Oakland.
Today she shares that passion with hundreds of kids every year. This weekend she is putting on an event to bring the work of established artists like Shepard Fairey and John Lithgow to their fans to benefit art programs for children that attend LAUSD schools.
The program is called STARS ALIGNED TO SAVE THE ARTS – BENEFIT TO RAISE AWARENESS OF THE IMPORTANCE OF ARTS EDUCTION FOR OUR CHILDREN. This event hopes to protect public school arts programs from the 100% proposed cuts they face.
On Saturday, June 2, 2012, from 3:00pm-6:30pm government officials and celebrities will join Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) teachers, students and parents for Save the Arts, a benefit that includes performances to resuscitate arts education. The event will be held at the historic Coconut Grove, 3400 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles 90010.
Listen as Suzanne vamps on all things thespianic (if that’s a word) and academic. Enjoy 15 minutes with Suzanne and MIPtalk.com host Brad Rowe.1 comment
