LCAD fundraiser will help Typhoon Haiyan victims

The Laguna College of Art and Design (LCAD) will host a fundraiser for Typhoon Haiyan relief from 5 to 7 p.m. Dec. 9.

Students, faculty and staff will create and donate works, which will be sold at "Art for Haiyan."

The school hopes to raise more than $2,500, all of which will benefit the UNICEF Emergency Relief. The event will take place at LCAD's Main Campus Gallery at 2222 Laguna Canyon Road and will be open to the public. People are encouraged to purchase original works or digital prints with cash or checks.

"As artists, designers and lovers of art and design, we all know that art has the power to make a difference on a multitude of levels," Charity Oetgen, a fine arts student, said in a release.

LCAD also raised over $5,000 for victims of both Hurricane Sandy and the earthquake and tsunami that hurtled through Japan.

Yucatán photos on display in foaSOUTH's latest exhibition

The Festival of Arts presents foaSOUTH's latest show, "Robert A. Hansen: A Journey," through Jan. 10.

As a veteran exhibitor at the summer-long art show, Hansen's work is part of the Festival's Permanent Art Collection. This show features black-and-white photographs depicting Mayan ruin sites, abandoned churches and other glimpses of the people and culture in Southern Mexico, made as Hansen traveled throughout the Yucátan Peninsula.

"Stated simply, my truth is in the artistic growth I experienced and am continuing to experience as this work evolves," Hansen stated on the Festival's website. "It's about getting my agenda and myself out of the way and letting the subject speak for itself through my hands and tools."

Guests are welcome to view his work, which was curated by Pat Sparkuhl, between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. daily.
