Thanks for coming out (or being there in spirit!) for the first Global March for Lions last Saturday in Washington Square Park. It was globally a great success with Archbishop Tutu leading the ceremonies. Locally, we had 300+ participants speaking up for the cause with beautiful posters designed by our advisory board member, Carla Alpert, that included a painting from yours truly. The posters enhanced Head of NYC's Global March for Lions, Sarah La Rocca's vision of an artistic slant to the festivities. Other endeavors included African drummers and a lion sculpture. Lots of enthusiasm abounded for combining art and conservation and many enthusiastic New Yorkers are now following Art of the Pride.
In other news, we will be in an article on crowd-sourced fundraising in the June issue of Professional Artist Magazine and will keep you posted on that as well.
Happy first day of Spring!
