An art fundraiser for Mali Health Organizing Project: On November 27th, artists Geddes Levenson and Annie Blazejack set aside a day for a painting conversation. Over the course of 24 hours, each painted 24 works on paper; each responding to the other's work and together building two series of images. Paintings can be purchased at for $250 each. Half of all proceeds will go directly to the Mali Health Organizing Project.

There is this Greek myth, I don't remember the exact details, but I think this ship is off to fight in the Trojan war.  But someone on the ship does something offensive to the Gods, and the ship gets caught in a horrible storm just off shore, and won't move and everyone is starving. Finally the ship's oracle tells the captain, you angered the gods, the boat won't move until you sacrifice your daughter and throw her overboard.
