For Immediate Release:
(October 7, 2009, New York)
On Saturday, October 17th, the Art For Progress (AFP) Artists' Loft returns with an exceptional night of diverse art, music and performance.

Fresh off of several exciting events in the past month including AFP”s Groove Cruise, MBP's Urban Arts Fest and The Drop, the excitement continues to build this fall as we present Volume III of our Artists' Loft series.
This event will re-launch Plays for Progress (PFP), with a presentation of 3 short plays starting at 8PM.  PFP utilizes theatre to promote social change, finding work from playwrights who remind us of our own life and the vibrancy of ideas that we bring to our interactions with one another.  
PFP cast members Emily Cheney, Paul Kendrick, June Gachui, Luis Otero, Julia Rafal, and John Touchton  will perform the following plays, all directed by Alexis Confer:  Recess by Richard LaGravenese, Please Have a Seat and Someone Will Be With You Shortly by Garth Wingfield, and Sleeping City by John Belluso.

AFP's multi-media loft programming will also include an evening-long exhibition of compelling works by featured AFP visual artists:
-Michael Lorenzini
-photographer Berette Macaulay of SeBiArt
-Jeanne Wilkinson
-Maria Rapetskaya -Brooke McGowan
and one of our recent additions
-photographer John Morrison.
