Art Saves


I agreed to be a guest curator for a wonderful new website called Crescendoh.
I am really excited about this, not only because its a wonderful organization but because it was the brainchild of a very inspiring woman, Jenny Doh. Many of us know Jenny from her days as Editor-in-Chief of our beloved Stampintgton publications. The website will be up and running soon http://www.crescendoh.com and in the meantime you can become a facebook fan by clicking here.


"CRESCENDOh actualizes its mission and values by creating an online presence where: • Like-minded creatives gather to shine light on the best projects and ideas from the online world. In doing so, CRESCENDOh builds an organic, home-grown development of increased visits to CRESCENDOh, resulting in a mutual home-grown development of increased visits to its linked sites. • In addition to the links to projects and ideas, CRESCENDOh helps tell unique and heartfelt ART SAVES stories from successful artists who serve as Guest Curators throughout the year. Through these stories, an organic and home-grown development of organizations born out of the stories grow. Reader-submitted stories about ART SAVES are also collected and shared, to help the CRESCENDOh community learn about the global power of art. • The concept ART SAVES is carried out further through exclusive ART SAVES Products that are sold in the shop. These products are created with original work by artists, with 100% of the proceeds going to a CRESCENDOh charity of choice. • All other facets of CRESCENDOh.com — CRESCENDOh TV, CRESCENDOh Radio, In the Know, Book and Product Reviews, and Proof Positive are all built to align and enhance the mission, values, and goals of CRESCENDOh."
