> DESCRIPTION

Global Fusion Art is happy to present a special evening of art, music and more, to celebrate the National Arts and Humanities month. We join hundreds of organizations across the country in celebrating October as the National Arts and Humanities month to encourage, renew and begin a lifelong habit of active participation in the arts and humanities. Reflected in the work of our participating artists, we recognize the importance of art and culture to the well being of our families, our nation and the global community.

For this event, artists have pledged 10% of sale price of artwork and event proceeds will be donated to Americans for the Arts, dedicated to representing and serving local and national communities and creating opportunities for everyone to participate in and appreciate all forms of the arts. They partner with local, state, and national arts organizations; government agencies; business leaders; individual philanthropists; educators; and funders throughout the country. Americans for the Arts is fighting to ensure that art, music, dance and theatre do not disappear from our schools and communities.

Global Fusion Art is a collective group of multicultural artists and communities committed to support cross-cultural understanding through visual arts, music, performance and multi-media.  We seek to raise awareness of the global community and promote individuals and organizations that provide humanitarian services across the world.

Participating Visual Artists:

Farhana Akhter, Michael Ricardo Andreev, Anna Harper, Ryan Monaghan, Todd Monaghan, Scott Munroe, Zakiya Raines, Tania Sen

Guest Speaker:

7:00 pm - Paul Roseman will present the Space Solar Power Project. A long time member of the National Space Society, Paul Roseman will show a plan to get solar power at a reasonable cost. Solar power from outer space is an opportunity to get clean energy with technology helping to reduce cost.

Performance:

7:30 pm - Music by Violinist Michael Braudy.  An experienced violinist in Western, North Indian and Celtic music, Michael Braudy has taught music and meditation for over 30 years. A versatile improviser, he regularly collaborates with poets, storytellers, dancers, theatre and mime.
