Benefit for Friends of the LA River

C4Gallery in Hollywood is hosting a benefit for Friends of the Los Angeles River this Saturday, 2/21 from 5 pm to midnight. Work featured includes photos by Matthew Betcher and Oramah Bagheri.

Unfortunately, the FOLAR page doesn’t have links to individual posts so you’ll have to click here and scroll down for more info.

And here’s the info about the event that I received in an email:

Join us on February 21st for a special closing party, celebrating art inspired by the LA River. C4 Gallery has generously offered to give Friends of the LA River a portion of the proceeds from the event – so please come and show your support for the River and FoLAR.FoLAR was founded as an art project, based on the idea that art and the attention it can bring to the LA River could serve as a catalyst for action and change along the River. As we’ve seen over our 23 years, art has a particular power to attract attention, sometimes for good, sometimes in less productive ways. Either way, the more people we can introduce to the River, the more people will be inspired or involved in the River revitalization effort.
