The MOLAA (Museum of Latin American Art) artisan fair and fundraiser held this past Sunday April 22, 2012 at the Long Beach residence of Susan Taylor was a big success. In addition to each artist contributing a percentage of their sales to MOLAA, quite a bit was generated from the the sale of raffle tickets for original paintings and giclees. The funds, which had previously been provided but subsequently cut from the public school budgets, will be used to expose students to museum exhibits and workshops. For every $25 donated, three students will get to be exposed to MOLAA. Good work and thank you my friend Linda Varela Oldenburg for all your hard work as the chairperson of the MOLAA docent guild and the organizer for this event.
