An evening of raising awareness through art / by KirstenStudio

This multimedia fundraiser took place at Best Buy's loft in Soho. Parsons New School of Design students created Afghan inspired art based on the video Heather Metcalfe produced and directed and I cut. We first took the video short (entitled Voices of Afghanistan) to the school for a screening and post panel talk back, then these amazing students donated their art to the cause for a silent auction. The evening also included screening of the video short, Artfully Unforgotten merchandise designed by Danielle Savin and a raffle with tons of great loot. Fun, food, drink was had by all. Next event is April 2010 and a Voices of Afghanistan book will be released in the near future as well. Go to to find out more. Below are some highlights from the evening. Thank you Aubrie Fennecken for being a videographer for awhile!
