Benefit art show/sale by the children of Ayudame a Pintar Mi Futuro, "HeLp Me to Paint My Future," an art school for poor kids in San Pedro la Laguna, on Lake Atitlán in Guatemala. San Pedro is a leading center of contemporary Mayan art, and the school trains young children to be professional artists. Their teacher, Jose Mendez, will be at the show, and will display his own work, as well as the students'; plus weavings and jewelry by San Pedro area artists. Proceeds of the show go toward tuition; food for students' families, who are among the poorest of San Pablo; school lunches, and counseling for families in crisis.
