Third Twitter Art Exhibit - L.A.

#TwitterArtExhibit has moved into a new phase. The basic principle is an exhibition where artists donate original postcard-sized art to an exhibition where the the proceeds of the sale of the art go to a non-profit organisation.

The 1st two editions were organized by David Sandum (twitter profile: @DavidSandumArt) in Norway for respectively children's books in his home town library and the Women's Crisis Center also in his home town.

As of this third exhibition that will be taking place in Los Angeles, #TwitterArtExhibit will be organized in various places around the world with a target of two to three exhibitions a year.

A new website has come online for the organazation of #TwitterArtExhibit http://twitterartexhibit.org wher you can find the information about this new format and  about the L.A. exhibition which is for the benefit of under-served youth (18-25) in L.A.’s Rampart District in the arts. The Exhibition is hosted at Exhale Unlimited (E.U.) Gallery.
