"Close your eyes and imagine a world without art... " This was the powerful image conjured by Adarsh Alphons on Friday night at the exhibition MY KID COULD DO THAT, a benefit for ProjectArt at The Underground Museum, Los Angeles.

ProjectArt is thinking out of the box. Forget buildings and running costs, ProjectArt brings it to the under served kids using public spaces and donations. This is an idea worth spreading around and supporting. Want to know more...
