Vision Festival X needs $.

From latest DMG opus/newsletter:

Here's an important announcement from Patricia Parker-Nicholson, organizer of this astounding festival. Please read this and help out if you can.

Dear Friends of the Vision Festival

An exciting new development -- The Vision festival will take place at the historic Angel Orensanz Center for the Arts at 172 Norfolk Street, near Houston. The Orensanz is an important home for the festival, housing those early Vision Festivals in 1997, 1998 and 2001. It is the most beautiful setting, architecturally embodying the sense of community that is such an important part of the Vision Festival. It is ideal both visually and acoustically.

The festival was originally scheduled to take place at the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center, but this city-owned building had thought they would have a sprinkler system installed, but because of red tape was not able to do this in time for the festival.

The venue change would have not been bad. But the difference in the rental for a city owned community arts building and the rental for a chic privately owned space is just over $16,000.

So I am forced to ask you for help for this year. We are a not for profit organization and your contribution will be tax deductible.

Please let me know if you can help. This is our Tenth Year. If you would like to send us a check, please make it out to ARTS FOR ART.

Thank you,
