On Sunday, December 11th over 50 people attended Art for Social Justice with award-winning painter Jim Potterton at his SOPA Art Space on Pacific Avenue in Santa Cruz.
Together, they raised over $3150 for a number of worthy social justice causes. At the event, Jim freely offered 27 pieces of his original art to individuals who donated to important local and national justice organizations.
Organizations benefiting from these donations included:
Planned Parenthood, The Mexican American Legal and Education Defense Fund, The Natural Resources Defense Fund, The Trevor Project as well as two important local organizations- Every Child Outdoors, and Communities Organized for Relational Power in Action (COPA).
Thanks to everyone who helped make this such a success. Visit www.jimpotterton.com, for more information and to view available Artworks.
