5th Annual Latina Art Show

In 1 on September 9, 2009 at 4:35 PM

For the past couple of months, I have been using my Tuesday nights wisely.  From 6:30 to 7:30 pm, I have been attending the Hispanic Women’s Network of Texas-FW meetings for the 5th Annual Latina Art Show. 

I have learned a great deal and I had no idea how much work went into planning an event of this magnitude, from flyers, invitations, letters, donations to public relations, meetings, conference calls and my favorite, research.

As part of my news writing class in my last semester in school, I wrote a story about the art show and was interested in it, so this year, I decided I wanted to be a part of it.  Cool, huh?  Yeah, I thought so. 

The HWNT_FW is dedicated to fundraising and awarding scholarships to graduating ladies so they could pursue their higher education and that’s why the Latina Art Show is such a BIG deal. 

The HWNT_FW takes art donations as well as other miscellaneous items and then auctions them off.  Donations of all kinds are accepted up until September 16th and the event will take place on Saturday, September 26th at the Rose Marine Theater at 6 pm.  There will be live music by Aurora Bleu and lots of art, lots and lots of art.

So come and support what I have been doing during my time of unemployment.  It really is a great cause and a lot of work went into it.  Let me know if you want more information on this, whether you are artist who wants to donate or are interested in attending and possibly bidding on an item.

Oh, and did you know the art will be on display the whole week beginning on September 21st?  Well, you know now, so go check it out before the big event.
