JAPAN: RISING RAISES OVER $30,000 FOR THE JAPAN EARTHQUAKE RELIEF FUND.

The JAPAN: RISING silent art auction and fundraiser, held on April 28, 2011, raised $31,147.42 to help the survivors of the March 11th Tohoku earthquake and tsunami disaster in Japan. The four-hour event held at Milk Gallery in New York City, featured over 75 lots by renowned and emerging artists and photographers. All proceeds from the sale that evening went to Japan Society’s Japan Earthquake Relief Fund, which supports organizations on the front lines of disaster relief and recovery in Japan. To read more about the fund recipients, please visit their site.

“As a Japanese-American Creative Director, it was heartwarming to experience
the outpouring of support and generosity from the creative industry that night,” said Mayumi Tatsuta, one of the organizers of the event.

The Japan: Rising team of Mayumi Tatsuta, Ben Pruess and Erik Lavoie, would like to thank Milk Gallery and the sponsors AOL and Scion; the additional in-kind support provided by: Sapporo, Ketel One, Herb N’Peach Catering, Mustard Lane, Urbanears, Purity Organic, Honest Tea, Vista + CRC Imaging Group, Billy Farrell Agency and Pearlmark Media; and the talented artists and photographers who donated their valuable work:
