NYC! The first major art event of 2013 is going to be a biggie! On January 5, 2013 (from 8 – 11 PM), Sacred Gallery will be showing drawings, craft works and collages that Damien Echols made while being wrongly imprisoned on death row for 18 years for a crime he did not commit. Damien Echols is part of the West Memphis Three and if you don’t know his story, you need to! Even though he’s had a very rough life, Damien Echols has overcome time and time again through the practice of Japanese Buddhism and he is a huge inspiration.
The exhibit will run from January 5 – January 31, 2012, but the opening night reception is a ticketed event. A portion of the proceeds will go to Dharma Friends Prison Outreach which helps to support and promote those efforts that benefit the most forgotten and most disenfranchised in our world.
Tickets are only $10 and they will sell out quickly, so reserve your spot today! (Link will open in new window).
Sacred Gallery is located at 424 Broadway 2nd Floor (Between Canal and Howard) SoHo in New York.
