DESCRIPTION

MIYAKO YOSHINAGA art prospects is pleased to present Till All Is Green, a special art exhibition on view from October 12 through October 22, 2011, with reception and silent auction on Thursday, October 20.  All proceeds from this event will go to help children who have been affected by the 2011 Japan earthquake and its aftermath.

Endorsed by the Consulate General of Japan in New York, Till All Is Green, will take place in the prime of the fall art season and commemorate the past six months of the disaster in Japan. The “green” in the title is a metaphor for the restoration and rebirth of the devastated natural landscape and a symbol of hope for a better and healthier future. In the light of the nuclear crisis at Fukushima, “green” also refers very specifically to clean, renewable and ecologically safe energy.

Till All Is Green will feature artwork donated by internationally renowned as well as emerging artists, and the works will directly and indirectly address ongoing issues faced by the disaster victims, in particular the life-threatening conditions for children survivors.
