SO WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT ANYWAY?

Initially founded as a photography program for children on the Cheyenne River Reservation in South Dakota, My View Point has now expanded into a grassroots youth arts program that focuses on empowering youth through a wide spectrum of visual and performing arts. Founded by photographer Emily Schiffer, My View Point Creative Arts Program has served over 90 students (aged 6-20) since its creation in 2005.

SO WHY SHOULD I COME OUT?

There'll be $3 drinks, live music, art, and great people!

More about the space:
•Art LES NYC Studios, www.artlesnyc.com (run by Aaron Thompson) is a landmark Lower East Side Art Gallery
Thompson transformed the neglected outdoor space behind his apartment building into a vibrant outdoor art
space.
•Art LES featured artist Tony Santana: Looking for Honesty

More importantly:
We have some exciting programs planned for this summer. Five visual and performing artists are volunteering their time to teach. They are flying out to the Reservation at their own expense. We'd like to raise money to pay for their tickets.
